STUDY OF PRECIPITATION KINETICS OF AN Al-Mg-Si ALLOY USING DIFFERENTIAL SCANNING CALORIMETRY
Keywords:Al-Mg-Si, precipitation, activation energy, natural aging, DSC
This work has been carried out by differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) to study the precipitation kinetics in quenched and natural aging Al-Mg-Si alloy. DSC curves showed exothermic and endothermic peaks corresponding to the precipitation and the dissolution processes. The activation energy of the precipitation process has been calculated using Kissinger model. The results obtained showed a change in the activation energy values, the activation energy for the β″ and β determined for natural aging alloy were higher than that in the quenched alloy.
