Paper Title:
Thermal Stability of Rapidly Solidified Alloys of Aluminium with Transition Metals
  Abstract

Rapidly solidified (RS) Al-TM (TM = transition metal) alloys are perspective materials from scientific, as well as technological point of view. Generally, they are produced by the melt atomization or by the melt spinning. Subsequent compaction is commonly performed by the hot extrusion. Since transition metals, such as Cr, Fe, Ni, Zr, Ti, Mn and others, have low diffusion coefficients in solid aluminium (lower by several orders of magnitude than those of common alloying elements like Cu, Si, Mg, Zn etc.) the RS Al-TM alloys are characterized by a high thermal stability. In this paper, several RS Al-TM (TM = Cr, Fe, Ti, Mn, Ni) alloys prepared by the melt spinning and melt atomization are compared to commercially available 2xxx, 6xxx and 7xxx wrought alloys. The main structural features of both RS and wrought alloys are described. The RS alloys are characterized by the presence of micro and nano-scale crystalline and/or quasi-crystalline phases and supersaturated solid solutions. The elevated-temperature behaviour is compared for both groups of materials. The thermal stability of the investigated materials is determined by room temperature hardness measurements after various annealing regimes and a high thermal stability of the RS alloys is demonstrated. The microstructural changes and phase transformations occurring in the investigated materials upon heating are described. In the Al-TM alloys, very slow decomposition of the supersaturated solid solutions, precipitation and decomposition of the metastable quasi-crystalline phases occur.
