Achieving highly strengthened Al–Cu–Mg alloy by grain refinement and grain boundary segregation

Abstract : An age-hardenable Al-Cu-Mg alloy (A2024) was processed by high-pressure torsion (HPT) for producing an ultrafine-grained structure. The alloy was further aged for extra strengthening. The tensile strength then reached a value as high as ~1 GPa. The microstructures were analyzed by transmission electron microscopy and atom probe tomography. The mechanism for the high strength was clarified in terms of solid-solution hardening, cluster hardening, work hardening, dispersion hardening and grain boundary hardening. It is shown that the segregation of solute atoms at grain boundaries including subgrain boundaries plays a significant role for the enhancement of the tensile strength.
