Metallurgical Considerations in Fracture Resistance
The application of toughness testing to alloy development has led to a number of high-strength aluminum alloys and special tempers of some alloys with outstanding combinations of strength and toughness. An underlying basis ...
Understanding the Aluminum Temper Designation System
This chapter provides additional detail and illustrations for the use of temper designations in the aluminum industry today for both wrought and cast alloys. This discussion expands on the basic Aluminum Association Temper ...
The test methods and criteria used to evaluate the fracture characteristics of aluminum alloys are reviewed, and a substantial amount of representative test data for individual lots of aluminum sheet, plate, forgings, ...
Aluminum Alloy and Temper Designation Systems of the Aluminum Association
It is very useful for secondary fabricators and users of aluminum products and components to have a working knowledge of the Aluminum Association alloy and temper designation systems. The alloy system provides a standard ...
Understanding Wrought and Cast Aluminum Alloy Designations
The wrought alloy designation system consists of four numerical digits, sometimes preceded by a capital letter as indicated in Chapter 2. The first digit indicates the principal alloying elements, as described in this ...
