The heterogeneous precipitate microstructure of a AA2050 Al–Li–Cu in the T8 state after friction stir welding has been mapped by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). 2D resolved maps of the fraction and size of both T1 platelets precipitates and clusters/GP zones formed at room temperature are provided. TEM micrographs of selected zone confirm the interpretation of SAXS intensities. This microstructure mapping is compared to microhardness mapping and a direct correlation is shown. Short duration heat treatments made in a salt bath help understanding precipitate stability and suggest that the temperature exploration alone explains to a large extent the distribution of the precipitates microstructure across the welded structure.
