Properties of Aluminum Castings

Page range:
489 - 496


This article is a comprehensive collection of tables and curves that present data on the properties of aluminum castings. Data are presented to explain the physical properties such as ratings of castability, corrosion resistance, machinablity, and weldability for aluminum casting alloys. The article discusses the typical mechanical properties and mechanical-property limits for aluminum sand casting alloys, permanent mold casting and die casting alloys based on tests of separately cast specimens; and typical mechanical properties of premium-quality aluminum alloy castings and elevated-temperature aluminum casting alloys. It provides a list of the creep-rupture properties and fatigue strengths of separately sand cast test bars of alloy 201.0, alloy C355.0-T61, alloy A356.0-T61, and alloy 354.0-T61.
