High strength 7075 aluminum alloys having functionally graded properties are manufactured by hot stamping process. The local modification of the strength and elongation properties is achieved by using different cooling conditions during the forming and quenching process inside the tools.
The purpose of the current research is to investigate the mechanical and
microstructural property change throughout the hat shaped Al alloy. This study will contain the following work packages that can be discussed in a personal meeting:
- Metallographic sample preparation
- Microstructural characterization by microscope
- Mechanical characterization by tensile test and hardness measurement
- The evaluation of experimental results
