Non Ferrous alloys
• Particles impede dislocations.
• Ex: Al-Cu system
--Pt A: solution heat treat
(get a solid solution)
--Pt B: quench to room temp.
--Pt C: reheat to nucleate
small q crystals within
• Other precipitation

• 2014 Al Alloy:
• TS peaks with
• Increasing T accelerates
• %EL reaches minimum
with precipitation time.

• Hard precipitates are difficult to shear.
Ex: Ceramics in metals (SiC in Iron or Aluminum).
• Internal wing structure on Boeing 767
