The fracture toughness of Al-Zn-Mg-Cu-based 7XXX aluminum alloys decreases with an increase in the extent of recrystallization. In this contribution, the fracture path of plane-strain fracture-toughness specimens of alloy (a typical alloy of the 7XXX series) is quantitatively characterized as a function of degree of recrystallization, specimen orientation, and aging condition. An investigation was made to identify the microstructural features which control the fracture behavior of Al-Li alloys. Tensile, fracture toughness, and selected fatigue tests were conducted on candidate Al-Li alloys (Al-Mg-Li, Al-Cu-Li, and Al-Li). Alcoa - Massena Operations is a totally integrated aluminum producer from primary production to fabricated rod, wire and bar products. Alcoa - Massena Operations currently offers sixteen different alloys of forging stock; eight of these have a wide usage in a variety of aerospace applications.

In general, the metallography of aluminium and its alloys is a hard job in the meaning that aluminium alloys represent a great variety of chemical compositions and thus a wide range of hardnesses and different mechanical properties.

Therefore the techniques required for metallographic examination may vary considerably between soft and hard alloys.
