Tailored heat treated accumulative roll bonded aluminum blanks: failure under bending stresses

Ultrafine-grained accumulative roll bonded (ARB) sheet metals of aluminum alloys have a high potential for lightweight construction. The mechanical properties can be enhanced regarding strength and ductility by the combination of ARB and a local heat treatment according to the Tailor Heat Treated Blanks technology. The present investigation focuses on the… CONTINUE READING
