Abstract

Cast and aged Al-0.1Zr and Al-0.1Zr-0.1Ti (at.%) alloys, upon compressive creep deformation at 300-400 °C, exhibit threshold stresses attributable to climb-controlled bypass of coherent Al3Zr and Al3(Zr1-xTix) precipitates. Al-0.1Zr-0.1Ti exhibits a smaller threshold stress than Al-0.1Zr, which is attributed principally to a reduced lattice parameter mismatch between the Al3(Zr1-xTix) precipitates and the matrix. The present alloys are less creep resistant than Al-Sc and Al-Sc-Zr/Ti alloys with similar precipitate radii and volume fractions.
