Introduction of aluminum magnesium alloy for tank semi-trailer
As an important logistics equipment, tank trucks are widely used in the automobile transportation industry. Carbon steel tank trucks have heavy self-weight, low mass utilization coefficient, large vehicle fuel consumption, and the tank body is easy to rust and corrode and pollute the environment. Aluminum alloy materials have the characteristics of low density, good electrical conductivity, strong corrosion resistance, good heat dissipation and easy processing, so they are widely used in vehicles. Another important feature of it is that it has high relative mechanical properties, which can meet the requirements of the use of automotive container materials and meet the requirements of the development trend. It is one of the important ways for the development of lightweight technology.
Bottom frame of aluminum magnesium alloy 6061-T6 tank semi-trailer
The main alloying elements in 6061 are Mg and Si, which have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and good oxidation effect. The bottom frame of the tank transport semi-trailer can be selected from the "T" profile extruded from aluminum-magnesium alloy 6061-T6. Under the premise of ensuring the strength of the bottom frame assembly, the weight of the bottom frame is reduced by about 65%. The bottom frame assembly is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy 6061 T6 "T" profile, and the tank body is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy 5083, and the connection between them is welded, thereby strengthening the strength of the tank body and the bottom frame assembly. The underframe assembly is mainly composed of the middle beam, T-shaped reinforcing beam, longitudinal beam, traction device assembly, etc. The middle beam, T-shaped reinforcing beam and longitudinal beam are all made of aluminum-magnesium alloy. The frame material is aluminum alloy 6061-T6.
The body of aluminum magnesium alloy 5083 tank semi-trailer
5083 aluminum plate is AL-Mg series anti-rust aluminum alloy, which is characterized by excellent welding performance and good corrosion resistance. The tank body is made of 6mm aluminum-magnesium alloy 5083 material, and the cylinder body is longitudinally spliced to reduce the number of welds. The overall structure is subjected to finite element analysis and experimental demonstration. The performance indicators are better than the requirements of national and industry standards.
