Effect of Iron and Silicon in Aluminium and its Alloys
Iron and silicon are the main impurites in aluminium: they are always present in alloys made from commercially pure base materials. Both impurities form various intermetallic compounds. These particles can cause basic changes in the macroscopic properties of the aluminium alloys and are thus of special technological interest.
The aim of the conference was to clarify our present knowledge of the subject and to discuss the needs for future research.
