Precipitation and solute clustering in aluminium: advanced characterisation techniques
chapterposted on 2011-01-01, 00:00 authored by G Sha, Ross MarceauRoss Marceau, S P Ringer
Recent development of characterisation techniques and computer simulation has extended our ability to access atomic scale information regarding materials microstructure evolution. New results from such techniques have significantly progressed our knowledge about solute behaviour during the earliest stages of decomposition of the solid solution. This chapter updates current understanding about solute clustering and discusses the effect of solute clustering and micro-alloying on precipitate microstructure evolution in aluminium alloys. In addition, a brief review is given on the effect of severe plastic deformation on precipitate evolution in Al alloys.
