The heat treatment of aluminum alloys can be performed in different ways. Generally no separate use has been made of the process of heat treatment applied to indicate the state received as the end result only is of importance. The object of this paper is to examine simple, heat-treated Al-based cable alloys to decide whether the alloy 'remembers' how the heat treatment was carried out (in the case of the multistage treatment, what its sequence was). Two extreme types of heat treatment process were applied, namely one using external heat, another using internal heat with direct current.
