Abstract:An Al-Mn-Fe-Si model alloy was subjected to two homogenization treatments, to achieve materials with different levels of Mn in solid solution and dispersoid densities, followed by cold rolling and back-annealing. Characterization of homogenization and deformation structures with respect to the effect of different microchemistries and strains on the structures was performed. Time-temperature-transformation (TTT) diagram with respect to precipitation and recrystallisation as a basis for analysis of the degree of concurrent precipitation was established. The TTT-diagram shows a strong effect of Mn concentration in solid solution and dispersoid density on the softening behavior. Recrystallization which finishes without the effect of concurrent precipitation results in an even, fine and equiaxed grain structure. Precipitation prior to or during recrystallization (concurrent) does retard the softening kinetics and leads to a coarse grain structure. However, the effect also depends on the duration of recrystallization and amount of precipitation. Recrystallization proceeding over a long time combined with a large amount of concurrent precipitation has a strong effect, otherwise the effect will be limited. Pre-existing fine and dense dispersoids (mean size 0.1 µm) before back-annealing do also lead to a coarse grain structure after recrystallization no matter whether additional concurrent precipitation occurs.
