Effects of Various Thermal and Environmental Exposure on the Mechanical Properties of Aluminum Alloys

Abstract:

Article Preview

Aluminum alloys 6061-T6, 7075-T6 and 7249-T76 were subjected to several combinations of solution treatments, quenching media, and age hardening treatments to correlate their mechanical tensile properties to hardness and conductivity measurements. Additionally, the 6061-T6 and 7075- T6 alloys were thermally exposed to several temperatures to simulate heat damage effects. The thermal exposure was correlated to the tensile properties and hardness and conductivity measurements.
