M. S. Kaiser. THERMAL ANALYSIS AND KINETICS OF THE PRECIPITATION IN WROUGHT Al-Mg, Al-Mg-ScAND Al-Mg-Sc-Me (Me=Zr, Ti) ALLOYS. IJMSE. 2013; 10 (3) :1-11

Abstract:   (17194 Views)
Precipitation behaviour of wrought Al-6Mg alloys with ternary scandium and quaternary zirconium and titanium has been studied. Hardness measurements and resistivity studies are employed to assess the precipitation behaviour of scandium doped Al-6Mg alloy without or with quaternary additions of zirconium and titanium. Further, the kinetics of precipitations are studied by differential scanning calorimetric technique. Scandium has been observed to form fine coherent Al3Sc precipitates during ageing and these are responsible for strengthening of the alloys. The precipitation kinetics of Al3Sc depends on the diffusion of scandium in aluminium. Presence of fine coherent precipitates of Al3Sc impedes the migration of dislocations and increase the recovery temperature. The kinetics of recrystallisation is also delayed.
