A Versatile Aluminum Alloy for Cryogenic Applications
An extensive inspection of aluminum alloys of the well known aluminum 7000 series was carried out in order to meet the requirements of the French space program. Among them, the AZ5G was of particular interest; it is commercially available and is used in numerous designs (e.g., bridges, self-propelling bridges, pipes, armor plates, railcars, carriages, and tank-trunks) [1,2].
