The Tensile Property Evaluation of One 5000-Series Aluminum Alloy at the Temperature of Liquid Helium
New technical developments in the cryogenic field have been responsible for the continually increasing use of liquid helium, which provides the lowest possible temperatures. One class of aluminum alloys, the 5000 series, has been shown to have promise as a structural material for use at temperatures as low as -423°F[1,2], However, there are at present only limited data on any of the aluminum alloys, particularly plate, at the temperature of liquid helium (-452°F).
