Formatted abstract
A study on the bending behaviour was conducted on wrought aluminium alloys which are 2014 and 6061, in tensile and buckling under ageing temperature. While energy absorption of Alloy 2014 is higher than Alloy 6061, it was found that only Alloy 2014 in As Received and As Quenched conditions fail in ductile fashion in buckling test. Alloy 6061 has shown some cracks at As Received and Peak-Aged condition but did not fully break. It was predicted that Peak-Aged alloys would crack and break as it has the highest hardness thus prefer to deform elastically rather than plastically. There is a correlation between the energy absorption with radius of curvature of the deformed alloys under buckling. Bigger radius of curvature gives higher energy absorption.
