CLOSE LOOK AT 7475 AND 2024 ALUMINUM FOR AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES

Results of tests on aluminum alloy 7475 indicate that the sheet material combines the high strength of alloy 7075 with the good fracture toughness of 2024. Because this combination of properties is not available in current structural sheet alloys, 7475 is considered for use in pressurized fuselage skins, wing skins, and other applications requiring high strength and fracture toughness.
