Effets d'un vieillissement longue durée sur deux alliages d'aluminium de la série 2000

Nicolas Bello 1, 2
Abstract : The main objective of this work which has been conducted between the IRT Saint Exupéry and the CEMES, Université de Toulouse, CNRS laboratory is to reduce production and exploitation costs of aircraft primary structures by evaluating the potential increase of operating temperatures of aluminum alloys. To do so, two already fit-to-fly Al-Cu alloys have been selected and studied: the 2219-T851 and the 2050-T84. These alloys have been characterized throughout ageing treatments up to 10,000h at 200°C with electronic and optical microscopies in order to evaluate the microstructural changes. Standardized mechanical tests have also been conducted to follow the effects of such ageing on the alloys’ properties. The results have shown the stability of the mechanical properties and the microstructure of the 2219-T851 from 1,000h to 10,000h of ageing. This is attributed to the nano-precipitation of θ'-Al2 Cu, stable during the ageing treatment. Moreover, those precipitates tend to form during the ageing of the 2050-T84 by replacing the well known T1-Al2CuLi phase, unstable during medium range temperature ageing. During this thesis, special attention has been paid on the link between the mechanical properties and the fine scale microstructures of both alloys.
