A study of the relationship between precipitate structure and chemistry on the mechanical properties of aluminium alloys

Abstract:

The microstructural chemistry of the commercial aluminium alloy 7150, containing Al, Zn, Mg, Cu and some trace impurities, was investigated in detail. This alloy is a precipitation hardening alloy, deriving most of its strength from the fine distribution of solute rich precipitates formed during thermal processing. At peak strength this alloy suffers from the common problem of stress corrosion cracking, leading to unpredictable premature failure in the presence of a corrosive environment....
