Résumé / Abstract

Aluminium is a fairly recent metal (XIXth century). Investigations of its alloys developed in a military-industrial context. Duralumin was, thus, discovered at the beginning of the last century in Prussian Germany by the Metallurgist Engineer Alfred Wilm (1869-1937) who had been explicitly mandated to look for an improved aluminium alloy in a military-owned research centre located in Neubabelsberg, just south-west of Berlin. The name Duralumin is as much due to the fact that it is hard as to the fact it has first been industrially produced in Düren. International connections, as well as harsh competition, accompanied the first research on this alloy in the beginning of the twentieth century.
