Paper Title:
Effect of Electromagnetic Vibration on Microstructures of Semi-Continuous Casting AZ80 Magnesium Alloy Billet
  Abstract

Microstructures and macrosegregation of AZ80 magnesium alloy billets cast with and without the electromagnetic vibration were investigated. Compared with the conventional DC casting, microstructures of the billet have been greatly refined and the macrosegregation had been effectively reduced in electromagnetic vibration casting conditions. Increasing the electromagnetic vibration intensity, including both the stationary magnetic field and alternating magnetic field, leads to finer grains and more uniform distribution of solute elements in the billet.
