The different between 2024-O aluminum and 2024-T3 aluminum

T3 डिज़ाइनर हीट ट्रीटेड है फिर कोल्ड वर्क्ड. पदनाम उन उत्पादों पर भी लागू होता है जो अपनी ताकत में सुधार के प्राथमिक उद्देश्य के लिए ठंडे काम करते हैं यानी. 2024-टी36 . यह उन उत्पादों पर भी लागू होता है जिनमें फ़्लैटनिंग या स्ट्रेटनिंग को लागू विनिर्देशों में मान्यता प्राप्त है जैसे कि फ़्लैट शीट जिसे 2024-T3 नामित किया गया है.

The T4 designator is solution heat treated and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition. This designation applies when the product is NOT cold worked after heat treatment. The designation also applies when applicable specifications do not recognize the effects of cold work in flattening and straightening operations. The T4 designator applies when the product is heat treated by the customer.

Typical mechanical properties for 2024 : 2024-0 परम 26,000 psi yield 11,000 साई . 2024 T3 ultimate 65,000 psi yield 45,000psi. 2024 T4 ultimate 64,000 psi yield 42,000psi.

2024-O HT to -T42 is not normally required by engineering unless significant forming is required that CANNOT be safely accomplished [potential for cracks] in the -T3 temper.

Moderate forming in the -O [annealed] condition or [more preferred] in the -W temper [unstable temper within ~15–45-minutes after solution HT/Quench] can be done to tighter bend radii or greater total strain, than in the -T3 temper.

IF forming is done as recommended, then mechanical allowables for -T3 and -T42 tempers are quite similar and for practical considerations are more-or-less equal.

So it would appear that if you can use 2024 टी3 you may not have to heat treat.
