Formation of the Structure of a V-1480 Alloy during Thermomechanical Treatment


A comprehensive approach, which involves textural and metallographic studies, is used to study the structure of a V-1480 alloy of the Al–Cu–Li system (with zirconium, scandium, silver additives) after deformation under various temperature–rate conditions and subsequent annealing. Structural state diagrams are built.
