Abstract

This chapter is an atlas of microstructures observed in AlSi7Mg, AlSi11, and Al21CuNiMg modified with either eutectic (strontium, sodium) or hypereutectic (phosphorus) silicon crystals. The microstructure images reveal the as-cast state of gravity castings made in sand and metal molds, before and after modification. The chapter also provides composition data and includes callouts identifying various phase constituents in the interdendritic eutectic microstructure.
