  • The torsional ductility of high-purity aluminum was measured over a wide temperature range (110-610)degree)C and at three strain rates (5.1 )times) 10/sup )minus/4), 1.3 )times) 10/sup )minus/2), and 5.1 )times) 10/sup )minus/1) s/sup )minus/1); several trends were noted that are only partially consistent with earlier work in this area. At each strain rate, the ductility or strain-to-failure first increases with increasing temperature, followed by decreases beyond a ''peak ductility'' at a ''peak temperature.'' The peak ductility and peak temperature appear to increase with strain rate. It appears that the lower-temperature ductility trends can be explained by increasing dynamic recovery processesmore » that retared cracking and produce increasing ductility, while at higher temperature diffusive pore formation reduces the ductility. 20 refs., 3 figs« less
  • The oxide film which develops on aluminum and its alloys provides a tough tenacious barrier which must be disrupted in order to promote filler metal flow and wetting during any brazing operation. When considering the mechanisms of current brazing processes (both flux based and flux free), it is necessary to understand the changes which can occur in oxide films through the braze cycle. This study seeks to characterize thee crystallography, morphology, composition and growth kinetics of oxide films developed on aluminum brazing alloys over the temperature range 400 to 600 C using a combination of electron, optical (in-situ HVEM), andmore » thermogravimetric techniques. Results show that crystalline oxide formation occurs at 550 C on alloys such as 3003 and 6063, compared with 475 C for pure aluminum, and this corresponds with increased oxidation weight gains and sigmoidal oxidation kinetics.« less
