The study of mechanical properties of materials is a key aspect in various fields of engineering and materials science. One of the interesting directions in this area is the study of the mechanical properties of quasicrystalline and crystalline phases in alloys.

Quasicrystals are structures that have long-period ordered structures, but do not have traditional periodicity. They were discovered at the end of the 20th century, and have since attracted much attention from researchers due to their unique properties. In particular, quasicrystalline Al-Cu-Fe alloys have high strength, corrosion resistance and heat resistance.

One of the important aspects that requires further research is the study of the mechanical properties of the quasicrystalline phase in Al-Cu-Fe alloys. This will allow a more complete understanding of the structure and mechanical behavior of this material, which could have important practical applications in various fields, including manufacturing technology and engineering.

The study of the mechanical properties of the crystalline phase in Al-Cu-Fe alloys is also an important aspect of the research. Crystalline phases have a more traditional structure, and their mechanical properties can be studied using standard materials research techniques. However, the presence of a crystalline phase in Al-Cu-Fe alloys can influence the overall mechanical behavior of the material and its properties.

To achieve the objective of this study, a number of methods will be used, including the determination of the mechanical properties of Al-Cu-Fe alloys using various test facilities and techniques. For example, tensile and compression tests, measurements of the hardness of the material and analysis of its structure using electron microscopy will be carried out.

The results of this study are expected to not only expand our knowledge of the mechanical properties of quasicrystalline and crystalline phases in Al-Cu-Fe alloys, but also help optimize their use in various technological and engineering applications. This could lead to the development of new and improved materials with improved mechanical properties, which is of great importance for the development of modern industry.
