Abstract

In this study, severe plastic straining through equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) is imposed on age-hardenable Al-Mg-Si alloys having two different compositions of excess Si or Mg in the Al-Mg2Si pusedo-binary system. Thereafter, the alloys are subjected to aging and the microstructures are examined using transmission electron microscopy. It is shown that the precipitation behavior is significantly changed through application of ECAP.
