Msc. Project: Improving of aluminium alloys with heat treatment

Aim The project would select suitable aluminium alloys, to analyse their physical properties. Then, a specific heat treatment for each alloy is determined to improve the mechanical properties of the aluminium alloys. Hence, the mechanical properties of the aluminium alloys will be analysed trough mechanical and metallographic tests, before and after the heat treatment.

Objectives 1. Main objective Improve the mechanical properties of aluminium alloys with specific heat treatments

2. Objectives   Analyse the physical properties of the aluminium and it’s alloys Select the adequate heat treatment for each alloy according to the alloys requirement  Define the mechanical properties, trough mechanical tests, for the aluminium alloys before and after the heat treatment  Determine trough metalurgical tests the structural properties of the alluminium alloys before and after the heat treatment
