Abstract:

A study was conducted to determine the effect of glycol quenching on the mechanical properties of 7050-T736 plate as compared with water quenching. Results indicate glycol quenching does not achieve equivalent properties in plate up to 50.8 mm 2 in.. Use of glycol quenchants for 7050 plate is not recommended unless reduction in design allowables can be tolerated. Author
