  The flow stress behavior and the deformation microstructure of 7150 aluminum alloy during hot compression deformation were studied by thermal simulation test using Gleeble thermal simulation machine at temperature ranging from 300 to 450 and strain-rate from 0.01s-1 to 10s-1. The constitutive equation of the plastic deformation of 7150 alloy at elevated temperature was obtained by introducing Zener-Hollomon parameter. The experimental results indicate that the flow stress and peak stress increase with increasing strain rate, and decrease with increasing deformation temperature, which can be described by a constitutive equation in hyperbolic sine function, whose values of related parameters A,α, n and activation energy for hot deformation Q, are 4.161×1014 s-1, 0.01956 MPa-1, 5.14336 and 229.7531kJ/mol respectively. With increasing the temperature and decreasing the strain rate, the main soften mechanism of the 7150 alloy transforms from dynamic recovery to dynamic re-crystallization.
