Paper Title:
Investigation of the Effects of GP Zones Formation on the Properties of AA2090 Alloy
  Abstract

To respond the need of industries to the new materials with higher specific modulus and lower density than those of the older Al alloys, aluminum- lithium alloys have been invented and improved. Aging process is one of the most important methods to improve the mechanical properties of aluminum- lithium alloys which are in the heat treatable category of aluminum alloys. Low temperature and natural aging processes cause the "short range diffusion" of Cu atoms in the aluminum and the formation of the GP zones. In this research, stability of GP zones and the effects of these areas on physical and mechanical properties of AA2090 alloy were investigated by hardness, electrical resistance, DSC (differential scanning calorimetric) and tensile tests. Results show that endothermic effect in the DSC diagrams of AA2090 alloy at 180°C to 240°C can be related to the enthalpy of GP zones dissolution. Formation of GP zones in the structure increases hardness, tensile strength and electrical resistance of Al- Li C u (2090) alloys.
