Study on Microstructure and Properties of 5A06 Aluminum Alloy Welded Joint by Deep Cryogenic Treatment
In this paper, some deep cryogenic treatment experiments are first applied to 5A06 aluminum alloy welded joint at liquid nitrogen temperature （-155°C ）for 4h, 8h, 10h respectively. 5A06 alloy welded joints before and after deep cryogenic treatment are observed by X-ray diffraction and scanning electrical microscopy. The experimental results have shown that the deep cryogenic treatment causesβphase of alloy to disperse and makes the grain smaller than that of joint before deep cryogenic treatment. Therefore, the mechanical properties of 5A06 alloy welded joints after deep cryogenic treatment are greatly improved.
