Onset Frequency of Fatigue Effects in Pure Aluminum and 7075 (AlZnMg) and 2024 (AlCuMg) Alloys
AbstractThe viscoelastic response of pure Al and 7075 (AlZnMg) and 2024 (AlCuMg) alloys, obtained with a dynamic-mechanical analyzer (DMA), is studied. The purpose is to identify relationships between the viscoelasticity and fatigue response of these materials, of great interest for structural applications, in view of their mutual dependence on intrinsic microstructural effects associated with internal friction. The objective is to investigate the influence of dynamic loading frequency and temperature on fatigue, based on their effect on the viscoelastic behavior. This research suggests that the decrease of yield and fatigue behavior reported for Al alloys as temperature increases may be associated with the increase of internal friction. Furthermore, materials subjected to dynamic loading below a given threshold frequency exhibit a static-like response, such that creep mechanisms dominate and fatigue effects are negligible. In this work, an alternative procedure to the time-consuming fatigue tests is proposed to estimate this threshold frequency, based on the frequency dependence of the initial decrease of the storage modulus with temperature, obtained from the relatively short DMA tests. This allows for a fast estimation of the threshold frequency. The frequencies obtained for pure Al and 2024 and 7075 alloys are 0.001–0.005, 0.006 and 0.075–0.350 Hz, respectively. View Full-Text
