Paper Title:
Trace Element Effects on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties in Al-Cu-Li Alloy after Thermal Exposure
  Abstract

The effects of trace Ce, Ag on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Al-Cu-Li alloy after thermal exposure have been investigated. It’s found that the addition of Ce may lead to a slight increase in mechanical properties after thermal exposure at 107  . The stability of T1 phase is enhanced by independent Ag addition and the combined additions of Ag and Ce,which results in higher strength compared with Ag-free alloy at 150  thermal exposure. However, at 200  exposure, a great number of q¢ precipitates at the expense of T1 may be responsible for higher tensile strength in the Ag-free alloy than that of the independent addition of Ag and combined additions of Ag and Ce alloys.
