By DeWeese, S K Ningileri, S T; Das, S K; Green, J A S This paper examines the current status of stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) in the manufacturing and use of 5182 aluminum beverage can ends. Stress-corrosion cracking failures of the aluminum easy-open ends is an infrequent and undesirable failure encountered with filled beverage containers. Although SCC is responsible for a relatively small percentage of aluminum beverage can failures each year, it is still a concern to can...


Word of the Day
monteith
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
