• The Effect of Elastic Strain and Small Plastic Deformation on Tensile Strength of a Lean Al–Mg–Si Alloy 

      Mørtsell, Eva Anne; Westermann, Ida; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Pedersen, Ketill Olav; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Røyset, Jostein; Holmedal, Bjørn; Holmestad, Randi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Al–Mg–Si alloys are usually formed into their final shape by rolling or extrusion. After extrusion, the aluminium profiles are usually straightened, causing the material to be subjected to a small plastic deformation. This ...
    • The effect of heavy deformation on the precipitation in an Al-1.3Cu-1.0Mg-0.4Si wt.% alloy 

      Thronsen, Elisabeth; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Sunde, Jonas Kristoffer; Minakuchi, Kazuhiro; Katsumi, Tetsuya; Erga, Iven; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Friis, Jesper; Marthinsen, Knut; Matsuda, Kenji; Holmestad, Randi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      This work has investigated the effect of the combination of natural ageing and 80% pre-deformation after solution heat treatment on precipitation during subsequent artificial ageing in an Al-1.3Cu-1.0Mg-0.4Si wt.% alloy. ...
    • The Effect of Zn on precipitation in Al-Mg-Si alloys 

      Saito, Takeshi; Wenner, Sigurd; Osmundsen, Elisa; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Røyset, Jostein; Lefebvre, Williams; Holmestad, Randi (Journal article, 2014)
      Effects of addition of Zn (up to 1 wt%) on microstructure, precipitate structure and intergranular corrosion (IGC) in an Al–Mg–Si alloys were investigated. During ageing at 185 °C, the alloys showed modest increases in ...
    • The effects and behaviour of Li and Cu alloying agents in lean Al-Mg-Si alloys 

      Mørtsell, Eva Anne; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Ringdalen, Inga Gudem; Friis, Jesper; Wenner, Sigurd; Røyset, Jostein; Reiso, Oddvin; Holmestad, Randi (Journal article, 2016)
      We show how replacing a fraction of Mg with Li in a lean Al-Mg-Si alloy gives comparable strength and enhanced temperature stability. Replacing solute with smaller amounts of Cu and Li also improves thermal stability and ...
    • The Effects of Low Cu Additions and Predeformation on the Precipitation in a 6060 Al-Mg-Si Alloy 

      Saito, Takeshi; Muraishi, Shinji; Marioara, Calin Daniel; Andersen, Sigmund Jarle; Jostein, Røyset; Holmestad, Randi (Journal article, 2013)
      Effects of low Cu additions (≤0.10 wt pct) and 10 pct predeformation before aging on precipitates’ microstructures and types in a 6060 Al-Mg-Si alloy have been investigated using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). It ...
