Scandium Alloying of Aluminum Alloys

Basic physical metallurgy principles of alloying of aluminum alloys with scandium are considered and the fundamentals of the production of deformed semiproducts from these alloys are discussed. The discussion is based on the expected widening of the range of application of deformed semiproducts from scandium-alloyed aluminum alloys.
