Solidification Structures of Aluminum Alloys
The most common aluminum alloy systems are aluminum-silicon, aluminum-copper, and aluminum-magnesium. This article focuses on the grain structure, eutectic microstructure, and dendritic microstructure of these systems. It provides information on microsegregation and its problems in casting of alloys. The article also illustrates the casting defects such as macroporosity, microshrinkage, and surface defects, associated with the alloys.
