A eutectic system from the Greek "ευ" (eu.
Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces.
The hardenability of a metal alloy is the depth up to which a material is hardened after putting through a heat treatment process.
Hardness is a measure of the resistance to localized plastic deformation induced by either mechanical indentation or abrasion.
Heat treating (or heat treatment) is a group of industrial and metalworking processes used to alter the physical, and sometimes chemical, properties of a material.
Hot working process metals are plastically deformed above their recrystallization temperature.
Lüders bands, also known as "slip bands" or "stretcher-strain marks," are localized bands of plastic deformation in metals experiencing tensile stresses, common to low-carbon steels and certain Al-Mg alloys.

Ultimate tensile strength (UTS), often shortened to tensile strength (TS), ultimate strength, or Ftu within equations, is the capacity of a material or structure to withstand loads tending to elongate, as opposed to compressive strength, which withstands loads tending to reduce size.
Vanadium is a chemical element with symbol V and atomic number 23.
The weldability, also known as joinability,.
Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
Work hardening, also known as strain hardening, is the strengthening of a metal or polymer by plastic deformation.
