Strontium in A380 Affects Mechanical Properties Favorably
Recent research funded by the Department of Defense and the Defense Logistics Agency and performed at Worcester Polytechnic Institute has shown that different levels of magnesium in A380 changes tensile, yield and elongation properties. Strontium has also been found to affect properties. The research has identified properties in the following ranges: Tensile from 45.5 to 47.0 ksi, yield from 23.8 to 28.5 ksi and elongation from 2.4 to 2.8% For more details see page 3-7 the new 7th edition of the NADCA Product Specification Standards for Die Castings, this book also includes many more useful updates and revisions.
The 2009 Seventh Edition of the “NADCA Product Specification Standards for Die Castings” publication, Item 402, has recently been released.
