This paper presents an effort to characterize and model in an integrated manner the thermomechanical process of 7000 series aluminum alloys for aerospace applications. More specifically, the microstructural evolution and the resulting mechanical properties in terms of yield strength, strain hardening and fracture toughness are quantitatively characterized and phenomenological process models based on existing elementary equations are proposed.
