Abstract
This study aims to investigate the effect of compositional gradient on nano-, micro- and macro-mechanical properties in aluminum (A1050)/ duralumin (A2017) multi-layered clad structures fabricated by hot rolling. Such multilayered clad structures are possibly adopted to a new type of automobile crash boxes to effectively absorb the impact forces generated when automobiles having collisions. 2- and 6-layered clad structures with asymmetric lay-ups from one side of aluminum to another side of duralumin have been fabricated, which have been suffering three different heattreatments such as (1) as-rolled (no heat-treatment), (2) annealed at 400°C and (3) homogenized at 500°C followed by water quenching and aging (T4 heat treatment). For nano- and micro-scale mechanical properties proved by nanoindentation, higher hardness and elastic modulus correspond to higher Cu content at the interface in annealed and aged samples. For macro-scale mechanical properties, internal friction of 2-layered clad structures is higher than that of 6-layered clad structures in any heat-treatment samples. Deep drawing formability of annealed samples is considerably high compared to as-rolled and aged ones.
