In this review, the current knowledge related to the relationship between the heat treatment process and the microstructure and mechanical properties of A356 aluminum alloys are summarized. The review also examines the use of the Jominy end quench (JEQ) specimen and its application to the examination of the effects of quench rate and subsequent processing. Using the design of experimental methods combined with the Jominy end quench technique, desired changes in microstructure and mechanical properties of alloys can be obtained. So, the experimental technique of the Jominy end quench was concerned in this work.
