The nucleation, growth, and coalescence of microvoids are examined in high Zn and Mn content 7XXX aluminum alloys using high-resolution synchrotron X-ray microtomography. The results have clearly shown that the addition of Mn content (0.6% mass) increases the ultimate tensile strength with limited ductility. The loading step in which each microvoid was nucleated together with its nucleation site is determined by tracking the microvoids in reverse chronological order from the final loading step towards the initial stress-free loading step. It was observed that microvoids were initiated due to particle cracking, and void nucleation occurs continuously with the applied strain. Furthermore, it was also observed that the particle underwent multiple fractures. It was concluded the ductile fracture was dominated by the nucleation and growth of microvoids due to particle fracture.
