Aluminium Alloys and Composites. Aluminum is a metal of great importance because of its excellent corrosion resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivity, good reflectivity and very good recycling characteristics. There are nine different series of aluminum, which will be discussed later in this section, four of which are referred to as heat-treatable aluminum alloys, and these alloys are so-called because of the potential to increase the mechanical properties by precipitation strengthening [ 1 , 2 ].

Aluminum alloys for sheet products are identified by a four-digit numerical system which is administered by the Aluminum Association. The alloys are conveniently divided into eight groups based on their principal alloying element.
In practice for all metallic materials, damage by fatigue usually takes in two steps, the appearance of an initial crack which then grows as a function of the present microstructure. The objective of this study is to identify the elements influencing the fatigue crack growth rate on aluminum alloys of different microstructures. Characterization tests and microstructural analysis on T3, H22, T6 and T6 shades have been carried out. Based on the experimental results obtained, AAT6 has the best fatigue crack rate resistance which is explained by its behavior as well as the nature and dispersive distribution of the secondary element. The mechanical strength of pure aluminum is relatively weak which prevents its use for some applications. The mechanical strength of aluminum can be remarkably increased by the addition other elements, thus forming alloys [ 1 , 2 , 3 ].
Aluminium alloys or aluminum alloys ; see spelling differences are alloys in which aluminium Al is the predominant metal. The typical alloying elements are copper , magnesium , manganese , silicon , tin and zinc. There are two principal classifications, namely casting alloys and wrought alloys, both of which are further subdivided into the categories heat-treatable and non-heat-treatable. Cast aluminium alloys yield cost-effective products due to the low melting point, although they generally have lower tensile strengths than wrought alloys. The most important cast aluminium alloy system is Al—Si , where the high levels of silicon 4. Aluminium alloys are widely used in engineering structures and components where light weight or corrosion resistance is required. Alloys composed mostly of aluminium have been very important in aerospace manufacturing since the introduction of metal-skinned aircraft.
With the growth of aluminum within the welding fabrication industry, and its acceptance as an excellent alternative to steel for many applications, there are increasing requirements for those involved with developing aluminum projects to become more familiar with this group of materials. The wrought and cast aluminums have different systems of identification. The wrought system is a 4-digit system and the castings having a 3-digit and 1-decimal place system. Wrought Alloy Designation System - We shall first consider the 4-digit wrought aluminum alloy identification system. The first digit X xxx indicates the principal alloying element, which has been added to the aluminum alloy and is often used to describe the aluminum alloy series, i. The second single digit x X xx , if different from 0, indicates a modification of the specific alloy, and the third and fourth digits xx XX are arbitrary numbers given to identify a specific alloy in the series.

A chart listing aluminum alloys for casting standardized by the Japanese Industrial Standards. The chart below is from the Japanese Industrial Standards for aluminum alloys for casting, and is based on the information contained in ISO : Aluminium and aluminium alloys-Castings-Chemical composition and mechanical properties 4 th revision published in This standard applies to all aluminum alloys for casting standardized in JIS H and all types of aluminum alloys for casting standardized in ISO with the exception of materials for die casting.
An aluminum alloy is a composition consisting mainly of aluminum to which other elements have been added. The alloy is made by mixing together the elements when aluminum is molten liquid , which cools to form a homogeneous solid solution. The other elements may make up as much as 15 percent of the alloy by mass. Added elements include iron, copper, magnesium, silicon, and zinc. Aluminum alloys tend to be lightweight and corrosion resistant.
