The effects of thermomechanical treatment (TMT) on the engineering properties of aluminum alloys are discussed. At present, only one type of TMT seems commercially practicable. This is a T3XX type treatment for 2000 series alloy sheet. Of the other kinds of TMT those with the most potential are high-temperature aging final thermomechanical treatmen...

Context 1
... investigations aimed basically to develop new alloys, such that TMT results were reported for materials with new composition limits, but there were no conventional treatments for comparison. Tables 1-3 list a number of alloys investigated, the types of TMT and properties evaluated. Subdivisions have been made for commercial alloys, new alloy design and laboratory-made alloys. ...
Context 2
... is undoubtedly because such processing would in practice be much more expensive than conventional treatments. Table 1 shows that strength and ductility were commonly measured, but only three investigations [13,17,[19][20][21]25] were fairly comprehensive in considering the influence of FrMT on engineering properties of 2000 series alloys. Tables 4 and 5 list qualitatively the effects of post-deformation natural ageing FTl'IIT and post-deformation artificial ageing FTl'IIT on engineering properties. ...

The study presents a method to determine the σa-N curve (high cycle fatigue) for profiles made of AW-6063 T6 aluminium alloy. Experimental material data for a mini specimen taken directly from the tested item and selected empirical correlations allowing for a size effect have been used. A model yielding the lowest relative error of estimating the f...

Effect of large cold deformation on the age-hardening characteristics of 2024 aluminum alloys was investigated. The results reveal: 1) the aging response is accelerated after large cold deformation, and the peak strength is attained after aging for 40 min; 2) double aging peaks can be found in the age-hardening curves, and the first peak appears when aged for 40 min. The corresponding peak tensile strength (σb) and elongation are up to 580 MPa and 9.2% respectively, the second peak appears when aged for 120 min, but the peak tensile strength (520 MPa) is lower than the first one; 3) in early stage of aging (

The effect of grain size upon the stress corrosion cracking of 7475 Al-alloy plates has been investigated. Grain refinement resulted in a more homogeneous slip mode and a smaller size of grain boundary precipitates (GBPs) to influence the stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance. The more homogeneous slip mode is always beneficial for improving the SCC resistance. However, if the GBPs size was smaller than a critical precipitate size for nucleating hydrogen bubbles, the improvement of SCC resistance due to grain refinement, resulting from a more homogeneous slip mode, could not be obtained. The correlation of SCC susceptibility and hydrogen embrittlement susceptibility has been evaluated. The SCC susceptibility of the 7475 aluminum alloys is mainly controlled by hydrogen induced cracking mechanism.

Mechanical properties of age-hardenable aluminum alloys can be markedly improved by proper application of thermomechanical treatment (TMT). The degree of improvement in mechanical properties was indicated to be dependent upon TMT cycles and the alloy composition. The objective of the present work was to study the changes in microstructure and tensile properties of an AlMgSi alloy at room and elevated temperatures, produced by applying cold rolling reductions before aging at various temperatures.
