A range of mechanical properties have been investigated for non-hardenable aluminium alloys. Commercially pure aluminium, Al-Mn, and Al-Mg alloys in five tempers have been covered. In the models solid solution, particle strengthening and work hardening have been taken into account. Ab-initio calculations of the size and modulus misfit parameters that are needed in the solid solution hardening model have been performed. In accordance with the Labusch-Nabarro model, the solid solution hardening has been shown to be proportional to εL4 / 3 c2 / 3, where εL is the Fleischer misfit parameter and c the solute concentration. A cold work parameter H has been introduced. The contribution from cold working is linear in H for the tensile strength and fatigue endurance, whereas the contributions to the yield strength and to the hardness are proportional to H0.5.
