Description: This lecture provides an introduction to metallurgical concepts necessary to understand how structural features of aluminium alloys are influenced by alloy composition, processing and heat treatment, and the basic affects of these parameters on the mechanical properties, and hence engineering applications, of the alloys. It is assumed that the reader has some elementary knowledge of physics, chemistry and mathematics.
Keywords: alloy • atomic structure • crystal defects • crystal structure • crystals and atomic bonding • dislocations • grain growth • mechanical properties • microstructure • phase transformation • physical properties • plastic deformation • recrystallisation • slip
