Abstract

The nucleation and growth of zones in the AlMgSi system as a function of solution treatment and quenching conditions have been investigated. It has been found that the critical temperature, below which the nucleation of zones takes place by vacancy condensation, depends on the temperature of solution-treatment as predicted by a theoretical model. Quenching to above the critical temperature has proved that the nucleation of zones in this case cannot occur at dislocation loops produced by vacancy condensation, but only at other heterogeneities which exist in a much smaller number in the crystal.
