Metalworking I: Rolling

  • W. W. Leslie


The advent of suitable technology to produce roiled beryllium sheet on a commercial basis has not resulted in the wide scale use of sheet products that might have been expected. One of the chief reasons for this lack of acceptance is the strong tendency for basal planes to become oriented in the plane of the sheet during rolling. Although this texture and the cold-working attendant with the deformation in rolling combine to produce very high strength and ductility in the plane of the sheet, the through thickness properties are very poor.(1)
