256 Temperature (∞C) Time Range (h) 260 <0.01, >100 204 <0.15 149 <10 121 <400 From these tabulations, the following may be concluded: It is not possible to heat treat this alloy at 260∞C so as to produce the desired set of properties--there is no overlap of the two sets of time ranges. At 204∞C, the heat treating time would be between 0.02 and 0.15 h; times lying within this range are impractically short. At 149∞C, the time would be 10 h. Finally, at 121∞C, the time range is 35 to about 400 h. 11.D10 This problem inquires as to the possibility of producing a precipitation-hardened 2014 aluminum alloy having a minimum tensile strength of 425 MPa (61,625 psi) and a ductility

Below are tabulated the times required at the various temperatures to achieve the stipulated tensile strength. Temperature (∞C) Time Range (h) 260 &lt;0.5 204 &lt;15 149 1-1000 121 &gt;35-? With regard to temperatures and times to give the desired ductility: Temperature (∞C) Time Range (h) 260 &lt;0.02, &gt;10 204 &lt;0.4, &gt;350 149 &lt;20 121 &lt;1000 From these tabulations, the following may be concluded:...
