Effects of intermittent versus continuous heating upon the tensile properties of 2024-T4, 6061-T6, and 7075-T6 aluminum alloys

Anderson, H.L.

The object of these tests was to determine the effects of intermittent and continuous heating at 300 and 400 degrees F, for total periods of 100 and 200 hours, upon the tensile properties of 2024-T4 and 6061-T6 alloy rolled-and-drawn rod and 7075-T6 alloy extrusions, at room temperature and at the temperature of heating. The effects of intermittent heating were found to be cumulative and the same as for continuous heating.
