Silva, G.; Rivolta, B.; Gerosa, R.; Derudi, U.;

For many years 7075 Aluminum alloys have been widely used especially in those applications for which highmechanical performances are required. It is well known that the alloy in the T6 condition is characterized bythe highest ultimate and yield strengths, but, at the sa... View more
