Al 6201 is frequently used in commercial industries such as marine, aircraft, and power. In the following sections, a detailed analysis of several features related to the processing, structure, properties, and performance of Al 6201 is conducted. Additionally, the relationships between these features are discussed. The first section covers the different processing techniques and specifications that are currently available for this material. Next, the structural characteristics that result from these processing methods are studied. The correlation between structural characteristics and properties of the final product are then examined. To conclude, a comparative analysis is performed to show how the resulting properties affect the performance of the material. From this analysis, conclusions are drawn to determine which processing methods produce the most desirable and the least desirable structures and associated properties for optimal performance of overhead conductors in power delivery systems.
