solution heat treatment

solution heat treatment

[sə′lü·shən ′hēt ‚trēt·mənt]
(metallurgy)
Heating and holding an alloy at a temperature at which one (or more) constituent enters into solid solution, then cooling the alloy rapidly to prevent the constituent from precipitating.

In addition, the presence of the [alpha]-[Al.sub.15][(Fe,Mn).sub.3][Si.sub.2] phase that does not dissolve with solution heat treatment would explain the nearly three times higher volume fraction observed in the asquenched condition for alloy M3S compared to the base alloy M1S, similar to the observations of Elgallad [19].

(2) In the absence of P, the coarsening of eutectic Si during solution heat treatment may occur by simultaneous dissolution of the fine particles (Oswald ripening mechanism) and collision of the nearby particles.
