Abstract

This investigation is concerned with the age-hardening process as exemplified by the aging of a commercial Cu-Be alloy and, in particular, with this pro­cess as determined by X-ray methods. The amount of infor­mation available on age-hardening of commercial alloys is scanty and what information there is, is inaccurate.
