Keywords: aluminum alloy, thermal treatment, mathematical modeling, prediction of property values, graphic interface


This paper presents the realization of a mathematical model of a heat treatment process of an Al-Si alloy, with the help of which the values of some mechanical properties are preached. The method of elaborating the mathematical model is a statistical method, namely the method of the active experiment.
With the help of the MATLAB software and based on the elaborated mathematical model, we created a graphic interface that allows the prediction of the values of three mechanical properties depending on the thermal processing conditions of the studied alloy.
