Abstract:
The three dimensional (3D) microstructural evolution of A206 (AlCu4.5Mg0.3) and AlCu7 alloys is studied as function of solution treatment (ST) time by synchrotron tomography. 3D microstructural parameters of rigid phases such as volume fraction, interconnectivity (volume of biggest aluminide/total aluminide volume) and contiguity (touching surface) are presented. In situ synchrotron tomography is carried during tensile deformation out to characterize the damage mechanisms and evolution.
