Paper Title:
Structure and Property of Nickel-Modified Ultrahigh Strength Al-Zn-Mg-Cu Alloy by Spray Forming
  Abstract

Six kinds of Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys, modified with nickel and zirconium, have been produced by rapid solidification using spray deposition(the Osprey process). The effect of nickel on the structures, mechanical properties of ultrahigh strength aluminium alloy is studied, and the probable maximum of mechanical properties is predicted. There are three nickel-rich phases, Al3Ni2, Al7Cu4Ni and MgNi2, forming in 1%Ni alloy, its ultimate tensile strength(UTS) increased with increasing extrusion ratios significantly while maintaining high levels of ductility, Futhermore, the extruded bars show enhancing more clearly than extruded plates in UTS and ductility. The content of Ni should decreased with increasing of Zn and Zr, and the highest properties(UTS=832MPa, Elongation=7.5%)are attained in 0.20Zr+0.30Ni (wt%)alloy. In addition, the size, the shape and the homogeneous distribution of zirconium-rich phase produced in solidification is the key to effecting the mechanical properties of materials when Zr content is 0.2~0.5%.
