Paper Title:
Semi-Solid Stirring Brazing of SiCp/A356 Composites and Aluminum Alloy in Air
  Abstract

The semi-solid brazing process of SiCp/A356 composites and aluminum alloy was investigated. The two substrates were heated up to the semisolid temperature range of Zn-Al filler metal in the joint region by a resistance heating plate. At this point a stirrer was introduced into the weld seam in order to mix filler metal and the two sides of substrates into a single uniform joint. After stirring, specimens were sectioned for analysis of macro- and micro-structures along the weld region. The research shows that SiCp/A356 composites and aluminum can be successfully joining with semi-solid filler metal. It can be found that most of the oxide film on the surface of the base metal was disrupted and removed through the observation by SEM. The metallurgical bonds formed between the filler metal and the base materials. Moreover, the oxide film of surface of aluminum alloy was more thoroughly disrupted and removed than that of surface of composites with existing of Sic particle. The joint microstructure with globular α-Al grain enclosed by rich-Zn phase can be obtained after stirring brazing.
