Type of diagram: CCT
Chemical composition in weight %: <0.2% Zn, 0.6—1.2% Mg, <0.10% Cu, 0.40—1.0% Mn, 0.25% Cr, <0.1% Ti, <0.50% Fe, 0.7-1.2% Si, balance is Al
Alloy group: Aluminium-based alloys
Note: Schematic diagram of central cooling curves at different cooling modes for large sample in CCT diagram.
Electrical resistance–temperature curves of 6082 aluminum alloy at various cooling rates during continuous cooling was obtained by in–situ resistance measurement. Phase transformation start and finish temperatures were ascertained by the slope change of resistance–temperature curves. Continuous cooling transformation (CCT) diagram for 6082 aluminum alloy was plotted. The phase transformation start and finish temperature decreases with the increase of cooling rates when the cool- ing rate is slow, but as the cooling rate increases to a certain rate the phase transformation start temperature increases suddenly and then decreases continously. Phase transformations mainly take place between 220 and 400 C. Critical cooling rate for preventing phase transformation is between 16—34 C/s. For plates 20 mm in thickness is proper to quench by 60 C water.
