Rajan, T V and Saxena, M N (1968) Initial softening in some Aluminium base precipitation hardening Alloys. In: Symposium on Non-ferrous Metals Technology. NML Jamshedpur, Jamshedpur, pp. 122-137.
IT has been reported by previous workers1'2 that some extent of softening is observed before setting in of the usual hardening process when ageing is carried out on the Al-Cu and Al-Mg precipitation hardening alloys. The possible reason for the initial softening has been suggested as relief of thermal strain. No experimental evidence in support of this postulate has been reported so far.
