Abstract: The precipitation of T1 phase during the ageing of an Al- Li- Cu -Zr alloy sheet was studied by DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetric) technique. Results showed that precipitation of T1 phase occurred in temperature range of 250°C to 300°C whereas its dissolution occurred within the temperature of 450°C to 530°C. Furthermore, activation energies for precipitation and dissolution of T1 phase were determined 122.1 kJ/mol and 130.3 kJ/mol, respectively.

Abstract: Utilization of aluminium-lithium alloys in aerospace applications requires an understanding of how processing and product geometry impact their microstructure, crystallographic texture and mechanical properties. In this paper, the effect of various microstructural features as well as deformation textures on the static mechanical properties of Al-Li extruded components has been investigated. These relationships are discussed with regard to two 2099-T83 extruded sections, i.e. a cylindrical extrusion and an integrally stiffened panel (ISP). The ISP typically shows an unrecrystallized microstructure with varying texture depending on the location along its cross section while the cylindrical extrusions present a strong fibre texture. The anisotropy is noticeable in tensile and compressive tests for both types of extrusions.

Abstract: An Al-5.1%Mg-2.1%Li-0.17%Sc-0.08%Zr (in mass%) alloy designated as 1421 Al was subjected to equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) with rectangular shape of channels up to fixed true strains of ~4 and ~8 at a temperature of 325oC. This processing provided the formation of uniform recrystallized structures with micron scale average grain size. The 1421 Al after ECAE processing and in initial hot extruded condition was subjected to solution treatment followed by oil quenching and subsequent ageing. Fine grained structure evolved under ECAE remains essentially unchanged under solution treatment. However, this structure affects significantly the precipitation sequence during ageing. Relationships between microstructure and service mechanical properties are considered.

Abstract: The cylindrical cup drawing of 5A90 Aluminum-Lithium alloy sheets at various forming conditions was studied by both the experimental approach and the finite element analysis. The uniaxial tensile tests and forming limit tests of 5A90 Al-Li alloy sheets at various temperatures were first carried out. The tests results were then employed in the finite element simulations to investigate the effects of process parameters, such as forming temperature, holder force, and die corner radius, on the formability of cylindrical cup drawing with 5A90 sheets. In order to validate the finite element analysis, the corresponding deep drawing tests were also carried out. It is shown that the simulation results are in qualitative agreement with the experimental observations. The optimal forming temperature, diameter of blank, holder force, punch radius and die corner radius were then determined for the cylindrical cup drawing of 5A90 sheets, and the limit drawing ratio (LDR) reached 2.4 in the optimal parameter conditions.
