Abstract:

The tensile, compressive, shear and bearing properties were determined for all of the 2014-T652, 2024-T852, 7075-T7352 and 7079-T652 hand forgings being investigated. The property values and the ratios among these properties are reported. All of the tensile and compressive stress-strain tests, including modulus determiations, were made. The results of the individual notch- bend fracture toughness tests are reported. All of the remaining axial-stress fatigue tests of smooth specimens were completed.
