Abstract

Aluminum alloy AA6082 is one of the stronger alloys in its series and has high corrosion resistance properties. These properties combined with its light weight make it extremely useful in the aerospace and automotive industries. It is, hence, essential to test the given grade of aluminum and find out its mechanical properties and failure criteria for further applications in the industry. One of the major sources for testing the mechanical characteristics of a material is the Ultimate Tensile testing Machine (UTM). Tensile testing helps us to ensure a safe and high-quality material and to reduce the chances of failure in the respective field. The various mechanical characteristics provided as an output to the tensile testing experiment along with the interpretation of the flow curves obtained are necessary for the predicting the tensile behavior of the material (including necking and deformation homogeneity). Finite Element Method is a powerful tool used today for the simulation of such experiments and software using this are widely used to predict the mechanical properties of different materials, after validating a particular model. Another advantage is that it reduces the amount of material wastage as the validated model can then be used to find the mechanical properties of the given material under different boundary conditions, thus eliminating the need for those experiments. This project aims at developing and validating the uniaxial tensile test models of the proposed material, varying the strain rates, temperatures and material models, using the commercial FE software ABAQUS 6.14.
