Aluminum Alloy Selection - Industrial Metallurgists

Aluminum Alloy Selection

Are you responsible for selecting wrought aluminum to use in engineered components? Do you struggle to understand the pros and cons of different alloys and tempers?

In this webinar you will learn the considerations for identifying aluminum alloys and tempers suitable for an application. Case studies will be used to demonstrate the selection process and give attendees opportunities to apply their aluminum metallurgy knowledge.

A basic understanding of aluminum metallurgy is needed to get the most from this webinar. This includes an understanding of metallurgical factors that influence steel strength and hardness. We recommend attending our Wrought Aluminum Metallurgy for Designers on May 13 to learn these concepts.

Topics covered

  • Design requirements considerations for component alloy selection.
  • General effects of aluminum composition, temper, and microstructure on aluminum strength, ductility, toughness, machinability, cold-formability, welding, and fatigue resistance
  • Alloy selection case studies

A pdf document of the webinar slides will be emailed to webinar registrants 1-2 days before the webinar. You will also have 14-day access to a recording of the webinar.


Knowledge of the concepts taught in the Wrought Aluminum Metallurgy for Designers webinar or the Aluminum Metallurgy online course will be helpful for this webinar.
