Paper Title:
Effect of Direct Current on the Semi-Solid Isothermal Heat-Treated Microstructure of ZA84 Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

The effect of direct current on the semi-solid isothermal heat-treated microstructure of ZA84 alloy is investigated. The results indicate that it is possible to produce ZA84 alloy with non-dendritic microstructure by semi-solid isothermal treatment. Furthermore, imposing direct current during the semi-solid isothermal treatment of ZA84 alloy can accelerate the non-dendritic structure evolution of the alloy. Under the experimental conditions of this work, higher the current density, quicker is the rate of non-dendritic structure evolution for the semi-solid isothermal heat-treated ZA84 alloy. Further investigations need to be considered in order to optimize the current density, isothermal temperature and holding time.
