Developing Recrystallization-Resistant AlScZrMn(Mg) sheets for automotive brazing applications

This internship project aims at developing superior alloy chemistries and processing routes for the manufacture of recrystallization-resistant AlScZrMn(Mg) sheets for automotive brazing applications. Various alloys will be thermodynamically modelled, cast and rolled to thin sheets followed by a stabilization heat treatment. The sheets will finally undergo a simulated heat cycle that resembles that of a typical brazing process during manufacture of automotive heat exchangers.
