Strengthening of non-heat treatable alloys

  1. Apr 26, 2008 #1
    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:

    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

    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.
