|Abstract||The dissolution and growth of Al-3(Er,Zr) precipitates during tensile fatigue experiments were investigated by quasi-in situ and postmortem scanning transmission electron microscopy with Z contrast imaging and X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy. Al-3(Er,Zr) particles were observed with both non-core shell and core shell structures, which were formed during multiple-stage precipitations, in an Al-Mg-Er alloy. After fatigue deformations, the average size of the non-core shell structured precipitates increased significantly. By tracing the same precipitate particles before and after a high-cycle fatigue test, quasi-in situ electron microscopy revealed that the increase of average particle size is associated with the substantial dissolution of small non-core shell structured Al-3(Er,Zr) particles, whose diameters are generally less than 15 nm, and a consequent growth of larger non-core shell Al-3(Er,Zr) precipitates. On the contrary, the core shell structured Al-3(Er,Zr) precipitates remain stable during high-cycle fatigue tests. Possible mechanisms for the dissolution and growth of non-core shell structured Al-3(Er,Zr) precipitates are discussed in terms of particle size, interfacial energy and lattice mismatch, in comparison to the stable core shell structured precipitates.
