Elastic properties of precipitation-hardened aluminum alloys 2014 and 2219 were studied between 4 and 300 K using ultrasonic pulse techniques. Both the longitudinal and transverse sound velocities were measured. Also reported are the Young’s modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus, and Poisson’s ratio. For both alloys, the Young’s moduli are about ten percent higher than for unalloyed aluminum, and they increase about ten percent on cooling from 300 to 4 K. All the elastic constants show normal temperature dependence.
