Since strength and ductility have a trade-off relationship in Al alloys, controlling these properties using heat treatments requires careful attention to the dissolution and evolution of the reinforcing phases. In this study, the effects of solution and aging treatments on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Al-5.2Si-3.4Cu-0.28Mg alloy were investigated...... More
