Mechanical properties of AE-1 alloy at different temperatures
The ultimate tensile strength and yield strength of the AE-1 alloy decrease slightly with increasing temperatures from −60 to +200°C. The plastic characteristics remain unchanged.
The AE-1 alloy has a fairly high fatigue strength; it changes little from 20 to 200°C.
With increasing temperature the long-term strength of the AE-1 alloy decreases and the creep rate increases.
The AE-1 alloy has high mechanical properties by comparison with aluminum conductors.
