2024 alloy characterisation

The characteristics of two clad 2024 sheet variants are reported. One corresponds to a high purity version with reduced iron and silicon content while the other is a more typical composition. Optical microscopy in conjunction with both scanning and transmission electron microscopy have been used to characterise the microstructures. Optical image analysis was used to quantify the volume fraction of coarse phases while TEM was used to quantify the dispersoid content. These data were correlated with mechanical property data including tensile, fatigue crack propagation and tear toughness data.
