5754 - how far above yield/proof

5754 - how far above yield/proof

5754 - how far above yield/proof

We have an aluminium wall that is meant to withstand a pressure load of ~160MPa, total of around 1000 cycles in its lifetime. Originally the idea was to go with 6082 T6 and thus be able to remain below the yield/proof stress (220-250 for the T6). However, the part needs to be bent and during reviewing we realized 6082 is in principle avoided for bending and instead the suggestion of using 5754 H22 was made.

Now 5754 is fine for bending but has a much lower proof strength of Rp0.2 = 130MPa. In such materials/alloys, it is unclear to me what is the exact behaviour of the alloy over the proof strength. In particular, how many times and by how much could we operate at the expected +30MPa over the Rp0.2? How much of a plastic deformation is added with every cycle? Is this something that can be calculated or I am looking at a completely different alloy or strengthening of the geometry?

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
