Abstract

"The quench sensitivity of AA7136 has been experimentally investigated using Jominy end quench and test coupons of various heat treatments. It was found that this alloy is not quench sensitive. In addition, the effects of heating rate on both solution and aging treatments on AA7136 and AA7075 were determined using a newly developed reverse Jominy heating test. It was observed that hardness was reduced after rapid heating during aging and hardness increased slightly after rapid heating during solutionizing. These results are discussed in terms of microstructural developments. "
