Evaluation of recovery kinetics of a commercial aluminum alloy 3103 using stress relaxation and double tension tests
In the current study, stress relaxation tests at elevated temperatures were conducted on a commercial aluminum alloy. The aim was to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms governing the recovery processes and consequently, to obtain a reliable evaluation of recovery kinetics as well. Furthermore, these investigations enable to verify whether the stress relaxation measurements are suitable to replace the more laborious double tension tests.
