In the manufacture of a wine-glass the ductility of glass is illustrated on a small scale by the process of pulling out the, leg.
Its ductility, to which it owes its value, is profoundly affected by the rate of cooling.
Influence of the Constitution of Cast Iron on its Properties.- How should the hardness, strength and ductility, or rather shockresisting power, of the cast iron be affected by this progressive change from graphite into cementite ?
As regards both tensile strength and ductility not only the quantity but the distribution of the graphite is of great importance.
The malleability and ductility of metals lie at the basis of the work of the goldand silver-smiths at one extreme, and of the boiler-maker at the other.
