Hot Deformation Behavior and Fracture of As-Extruded 7075 Aluminum Alloy
Based on the isothermal compression experiment under constant strain rate, the deformation behavior and flow stress of as-extruded 7075 aluminum alloy at high temperature was studied. Then the fracture behavior and mechanism of 7075 aluminum alloy were investigated, the results showed that longitudinal cracking was easy to occur at a high temperature due to additional tensile stress and low melting point alloy in grain boundaries melting. Through analysis and comparing of C&L and Oyane fracture criteria, it was proved that C&L fracture criterion was more reasonable to predict fracture in 7075 aluminum alloy hot deforming, and the critical damage factor in a forming temperature range(300~450°C) for 7075 aluminum alloy was obtained.
