Learned about Al-Sc alloys in a student project in 1992.
Siv. Ing. (M.Sc. equivalent) in physical metallurgy, 1994
Thesis: Precipitation and recrystallization in the Al-Mg-Sc system.
Currently writing a Dr. Ing. (Ph.D. equivalent) thesis on Sc in Al-alloys.
Have experimented with alloys of the Al-Sc, Al-Mg-Sc, Al-Si-Sc
and Al-Mg-Si-Sc(-Zr) alloy systems.
11.Forum Title: Al-Sc Alloy Forum
12.Brief Description of Forum:
Forum for exchange of information about the business, technology and
science of Sc-containing aluminum alloys.
13.Welcome Message to Our Friends:
Hello, and welcome.
I set up an internet-page on Sc in Al-alloys in 1996.
Since then, I have regularly received e-mails from people wondering
abouth everything from whether I am interested in buying Sc metal
to whether Sc-containing Al-alloys can help them solve a particular
engineering problem. Many of these inquiries go beyond my fields of
knowledge. I hope that if inquiries are made in this Forum instead
they can be seen by more people, and thus there is an increased chance
of getting meaningful responses.
I also hope that this forum will serve as a means of increasing
the contact between people involved with Sc-containing Al-alloys.
