Introduction
I work on forming and heat treatment processes for aluminium wrought alloys to improve their formability and strength. To this end, I also develop methods for scanning electron microscopy of metals.

Development of improved lithium-containing compounds and alloys are critical to meet energy reduction roadmaps. However, progress in many applications is hindered by the inability to spatially resolve the distribution of lithium at the microscale using conventional analytical techniques such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) in the scan...

Full-text available
Room-temperature cyclic deformation of age-hardenable alloys can produce similar strength as artificial ageing in much shorter time, but industrial applicability is limited due to the high number of required cycles. As an alternative, fewer cyclic deformation steps can be combined with traditional artificial ageing: Introducing a small plastic defo...

Full-text available
The quantification of lithium in electron microscopes by energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) is highly challenging due to the low energy of the characteristic X-rays. Only special windowless detectors can detect Li, yet the sensitivity is suboptimal (i.e., ~20 wt. %). We introduce the use of quantitative backscattered electron microscopy in...
Article
Two-step ageing of 7xxx series alloys can reduce ageing time while obtaining similar mechanical properties as a longer isothermal heat treatment. In this paper, an intermediate deep-drawing step at 120–160 °C is introduced to produce elongated cup–shaped parts with near-T6 strength. A Cu-containing (Alclad 7075) and a non-standard low-Cu alloy (702...

Due to their high specific strength, magnesium alloys are promising materials for further lightweighting in mobility applications. In contrast to casting and forming processes, additive manufacturing methods allow high degrees of geometrical freedom and can generate significant weight reductions due to load-specific part design. In wire arc additiv...

Full-text available
Aluminium alloys of the 7xxx series are attracting the attention of automakers due to their high specific strength. However, widespread use of 7xxx series alloys for the production of car parts from sheet metal has so far been prevented due to their low formability at room temperature and the fact that conventional automotive paint-bake cycles are...
Article
During deep‐drawing of Al‐Mg sheet at room temperature, stretcher‐strain marks can appear on the material's surface. Such parts are not suitable for car outer body applications because the visually unappealing marks are still visible after painting. In this paper, the occurrence of surface marks on a miniaturized engine hood is significantly reduce...

Full-text available
Due to their high specific strength, EN AW-7xxx aluminium alloys are promising materials for reducing the weight of automotive structural parts. However, their formability at room temperature is poor due to pronounced natural ageing. Therefore, we investigated hot stamping and W-temper forming for EN AW-7075 and a modified variant of EN AW-7021. Fo...

Attenuation of Rayleigh-type surface acoustic waves induced by grain-boundary scattering is studied experimentally and theoretically by an effective medium approach. A frequency domain opto-acoustic laboratory setup, capable of measuring a coherent Rayleigh wave response by emulating an ensemble average via spatial averaging, is presented. Measurem...
Article
High strength Al-Zn-Mg(-Cu) alloys are rarely used in the automotive industry due to pronounced natural ageing after quenching and resulting poor formability at room temperature. Furthermore, the paint bake response is often suboptimal. To overcome these challenges, we performed various low temperature pre-ageing treatments followed by storage at r...
Article
Measuring the dimensions and number density of nanoparticles dispersed in a solid matrix is usually accomplished via transmission electron microscopy (TEM) which suffers from high cost, low throughput, and small analytical volume. In comparison, scanning backscattered electron microscopy is inexpensive, requires little sample preparation, and allow...

Safety components made of aluminium have the highest requirements in vehicle design. As part of a customer project, the crash properties of an extruded profile are improved by means of alloy modification and geometric adaptation of the cross section. An increase in energy absorption and reduction of cracking has been achieved.

The ever-increasing requirements of the automotive industry in terms of crash performance necessitate the development of high strength modifications of the EN AW-6082 alloy. The high amounts of strengthening elements such as Mg, Si, Cr, Mn, and Cu can lead to poor extrudability. The present work shows the impact of microstructure on the crash perfo...
