This project aims at a broad understanding of the temperature dependency (RT to 250 °C) of damage mechanisms under cyclic loading in severe plastically deformed and particle reinforced aluminium alloys. LCF, HCF and crack propagation testing, combined with microstructural analysis, will provide information on the thermal stability of the materials and on the influence of the particles, the changes in the strengthening effect of the precipitates and on grain size and dislocation density.
