Abstract We describe four criteria for the selection of alloying elements capable of producing castable, precipitation-strengthened Al alloys with high-temperature stability and strength: these alloying elements must (i) be capable of forming a suitable strengthening phase, (ii) show low solid solubility in Al, (iii) low diffusivity in Al, and (iv) retain the ability for the alloy to be conventionally solidified. With regard to criterion (i), we consider those systems forming Al3M trialuminide… 
Scandium-enriched nanoprecipitates in aluminum providing enhanced coarsening and creep resistance
The development of high temperature aluminum alloys able to operate up to 400 oC is crucial to replace steel and titanium and decrease the mass of vehicles in the automotive and aerospace industries.
The Thermal Properties of L12 Phases in Aluminum Enhanced by Alloying Elements
The L12 type trialuminide compounds Al3M possess outstanding mechanical properties, which enable them to be ideal for dispersed strengthening phases for the high-strength thermally stable Al based
Microstructure and Tensile Properties of a Cast Eutectic Al–Si–Cu Alloy Modified by Zr and V
Abstract Minor Zr and V were added individually and jointly to Al–12.5Si–1Cu alloy to develop heat-resistant aluminum alloys. The as-cast microstructure, room temperature, and high temperature (350
On the Thermal Stability of Theta Prime Precipitates in Al-Cu-Mn-Zr alloys
In this study, the high temperature compressive response of cast aluminum alloys 319 and RR350 are compared in light of their microstructures. The 319 alloy is widely used in thermally critical
High Temperature Behavior of Al-7Si-0.4Mg Alloy with Er and Zr Additions
In recent years, many efforts have been devoted to the development of innovative Al-based casting alloys with improved high temperature strength. Research is often oriented to the investigation of
New Progress on Er-Containing Micro-Alloying Aluminum Alloys
Erbium is an effective micro-alloying element in aluminum alloys and has been investigated intensively. Similar with the addition of Sc in aluminum alloys, nanosized L12-ordered Al3Er precipitates


Microstructural transitions in an RS Al-4La alloy
The use of rapid solidification (RS) techniques to increase the thermal stability of aluminium and aluminium alloys is considered a promising processing route. The Al-La equilibrium binary system
Grain refinement in aluminum alloyed with titanium and boron
The aluminum corner of the ternary Al-B-Ti diagram was explored. A eutectic: Liq — Al + TiAl3 + (Al, Ti)B2 was found at approximately 0.05 wt pct Ti, 0.01 wt pct B; 659.5‡C. TiB2 and A1B2 form a
Microstructural observations and thermal stability of a rapidly solidified aluminum-gadolinium alloy
Rapid solidification processing has significant potential to extend the use of aluminum alloys to higher temperatures (200/sup 0/C to 350/sup 0/C). In particular, alloys based on Al-Fe-X
Alloying of Al3Ti to Form Cubic Phases
The recent discovery of cubic L12 trialuminides formed by alloying normally tetragonal Al3Ti with Cr, Mn and Co, when combined with previous work with Fe, Ni, Cu and Zn as cubic stabilizing elements,
