  • The  A380 alloy is a common aluminum die casting alloy.
  • The aluminum A380 alloy meets the mechanical property and density targets.
    • Ultimate tensile strength is 47 ksi and the yield strength is 23 ksi.
    • The density of the alloy is 0.095 pounds/in^3.
  • But the thermal conductivity of the A380 alloy is 20% lower than the design target.
  • The aluminum A380 alloy is not the best choice.
