It is important to be able to decrease strength before forming, and then redevelop high strength after paint baking under conventional baking conditions. 4 The specimens are solution heat treated at a high temperature of 530°C and then water quenched, a conventional manufacturing process for aluminum body panels. Pre-aging is conducted at 50°C to 100°C immediately after water quenching. After one week at room temperature, the specimens are then heat treated using several different baking conditions.

However, during oxygen treatment, new layers of titania grow up around the nanoparticles until they eventually completely cover them. 8 The storage occurs by oxidation of reduced Ti3+ species which reside in the bulk of the sample, but that are pulled to the surface during oxidation. This preferentially occurs around the metal particle because oxygen dissociation occurs fast there, but occurs only slowly on the titania itself. We can also model the NOx storage process by fabricating inverted catalysts, in this case by depositing barium onto platinum(l11) followed by oxidation of the deposited barium.

Takahashi, Energy Absorbing Characteristics of Body Structures (Part 1), JSAE, Vol. 7, 60, 1974 (in Japanese). 27 Introduction In recent years, environmental improvement and safety have become very important for the automobile industry. Environmental improvement and safety features lead to increases in car body weight. To reduce weight, therefore, it is necessary to select optimum materials such as aluminum alloys. 2,3 Japanese automobile manufacturers have to achieve the same target by 2009.
