Weld Solidification Cracking Behaviour of AA2195 Al–Cu–Li Alloy
In this study, weld solidification cracking behaviour of AA2195 Al–Cu–Li alloy was studied and compared with conventional AA2219 and AA2014 aluminium alloys. Cracking susceptibility was evaluated using varestraint test and Gleeble® hot ductility test and the slope of liquidus temperature as function of liquid fraction was also evaluated. Solidification cracking susceptibility of AA2195, AA2219 and AA2014 alloys was ranked based on the above methods. Consistent trend in cracking susceptibility was observed in all the methods where AA2195 and AA2219 alloys showed highest and lowest cracking susceptibility, respectively.
