Modelling the Evolution in Microchemistry and its Effects on the Softening Behavior of Cold Rolled AlFeMnSi-Alloys during Annealing

A dedicated diffusion controlled precipitation model for AlMnFeSi-alloys, based on classical nucleation and growth theory, has been implemented and coupled to a phenomenological softening model accounting for the combined effect of recovery and recrystallization during annealing after cold rolling. The result is a fully coupled precipitation and softening model which in principle is capable of predicting for variations in solute levels and size and volume fraction of dispersoids and their interaction with the softening behavior during annealing.
