...—are copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon, and zinc. These elements all have significant solid solubility in aluminum, and in all cases the solubility increases with increasing temperature ( Fig. 1 ). Figure 2 ( Ref 1 ) shows the principal aluminum alloys based on these elements. Note that they are used...

... high-strength alloys exceed 550 MPa (80 ksi). When the magnitude of this difference (an increase of over 5000%) is considered, this practical, everyday accomplishment, which is just one aspect of the physical metallurgy of aluminum, is truly remarkable. Higher strengths, up to a yield strength of 690...
