Deformation Behaviors of 6061 and 7075 Aluminum Tubes at Elevated Temperatures for Warm Hydroforming

Abstract:

Article Preview

The deformation behaviors of fully annealed or T6-treated 6061 and 7075 aluminum tubes are investigated at elevated temperature using uniaxial tensile test. Fully annealed 6061 and 7075 tube, and T6-treated 7075 tube do not show sharp local necking with an elongation of 50% at tensile temperature of 300oC, accordingly, it is expected that warm hydroforming process can be applied. The increase of tensile temperature does not significantly affect the total elongation of T6-treated 6061 tube.
