A short but detailed presentation which gives the fundamental background to the heat treatment of Aluminum. It includes a brief commentary on issues including the effects of solution treatment, precipitation and ageing. The presentation also related some of the challenges surrounding the heat treatment of this widely used family of alloys within the aerospace industry.

Course Content:
  • Introduction to Aluminum
  • Alloy Types and treatments
  • Limitations to use and in particular heat treatment temperatures
  • Solution treatments
  • Quenching
  • Precipitation and Ageing
  • Controlling Natural Ageing
  • Radiative heating and the risk of incipient melting
