Main Question or Discussion Point

hi all
I need help on understanding this kind of strengthening of non-heat treatable alloys in general "not a specific alloy"
these are the subjects

1-grain growth
2-point defect
3-strain hardening
thank you

Is one interested in a specific alloy system, or does one have a more general or broader scope.

Non heat-treatable alloy applies to certain Al-alloys, but can also apply to alloys of other elements like copper.

Non-heat treatable Al-alloys included:

1100
3003
4043
5005 5050 5056 5154 5356 5554 5556


Here is a more general discussions of strengthening mechanisms in steels.

In general and for non-ferrous alloys.

More generally for steel/ferrous alloys - http://www.key-to-steel.com/default.aspx?ID=Articles
For nonferrous alloys - http://www.key-to-nonferrous.com/default.aspx?ID=Articles [Broken]

The specific method for strengthening will depend on the alloy system.

Let me see what I can do for other alloy systems. Meanwhile, please review the material and ask questions.
