"Thermo-kinetic prediction of metastable and stable phase precipitation in Al-Zn-Mg series aluminium alloys during non-isothermal DSC analysis";
Journal of Alloys and Compounds, 609 (2014), 129 - 136.

English abstract:
The technological properties of heat treatable Al-Zn-Mg alloys originate in the morphology and distribution of metastable particles. Starting from the solution-annealed condition, this paper describes the precipitate evolution during non-isothermal temperature changes, namely continuous heating differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. The distribution and the morphology of the metastable and stable precipitates and the heat flow accompanying the precipitation process is investigated experimentally and calculated by numerical thermo-kinetic simulations. The computer simulation results of the sizes and distributions are confirmed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The theoretical background and the results of the investigations are discussed.
