Effect of Aging on the Hardness and Structure of Quenched and Deformed Alloy Zn – 23% Al


The hardness and the structure of quenched and deformed (by up to 97%) alloy Zn – 23% Al are studied after aging at 100 – 270°C. The structural parameters are determined by the method of x-ray diffraction analysis. The aging temperature and the degree of plastic strain are shown to affect the properties of the alloy. The structural processes influencing the hardness and the structure of the alloy upon growth in the aging temperature are determined.
