The aim of this study was to investigate the Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) of anodic films on 7175 T7351 aluminium alloy and to evaluate the influence of the film characteristics on this value. In particular, effects of porosity and post-treatments, such as coloring and sealing, were studied. Beam bending analysis was used as the experimental method and a numerical finite element model was developed to verify theoretical relationships hypotheses. The values determined and the choice of experimental method were then validated by comparing the experimental cracking temperature of anodic films with a theoretical value directly depending on the previously determined CTE.
