This book compiles more than 300 tables listing typical average properties of a wide range of aluminum alloys. The individual test results were compiled, plotted in various ways, and analyzed. The average values from the tensile and creep tests were then normalized to the published typical room-temperature tensile properties of the respective alloys for easy comparison. This extensive project was done by Alcoa Laboratories over a period of several years.
The types of data presented include:
- Typical Mechanical Properties of Wrought and Cast Aluminum Alloys at Various Temperatures, including tensile properties at subzero temperatures, at temperature after various holding times at the test temperature, and at room temperature after exposure at various temperatures for various holding times; creep rupture strengths for various times at various temperatures; stresses required to generate various amounts of creep in various lengths of time; rotating-beam fatigue strengths; modulus of elasticity as a function of temperature.
- Fatigue Data, including fatigue strength of wrought aluminum alloys (approximate average values as determined in tests of smooth and notched rotating-beam fatigue machines), axial stress fatigue strength of wrought aluminum alloys (at various stress ratios, smooth and notched specimens), average fatigue strength for aluminum and aluminum alloy flat sheet specimens (under complete reversed flexure), cantilever-beam fatigue test results of aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures, and cantilever-beam fatigue test results of aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures following stabilization at the test temperature.
About the Editor
J.G. (Gil) Kaufman has a background of more than fifty years in the aluminum and materials information industries. In 1997, he retired as Vice President, Technology for the Aluminum Association, Inc., headquartered in Washington, DC, and is currently president of his consulting company, Kaufman Associates.
Earlier in his career, he spent 26 years with the Aluminum Company of America, where he managed engineering properties and fabricating metallurgical research At Alcoa Laboratories. Many of the data presented in this volume were generated over the period when the author was active in and/or managing Alcoa Laboratories engineering properties research.
Kaufman spent five years with ARCO Metals, where he was Director of R&D and, later, Vice President, Research & Engineering.
Kaufman also served for nine years as President and CEO of the National Materials Property Data Network where, working with STN International and Chemical Abstracts Service, he established a worldwide online network of more than 25 numeric materials databases.
Gil is a Fellow and Honorary Member of ASTM, and a Fellow and Life Member of ASM International. He has published more than 130 articles and several books on aluminum alloys and materials data systems.
