Paper Title:
Micro-Structural Evolution of AlCu5MnCdVA Cast Aluminum Alloy by Semi-Solid Isothermal Annealing Process
  Abstract

Isothermal grain coarsening of AlCu5MnCdVA aluminum alloy prepared by permanent mould casting during semi-solid treatment process was studied. It was found that the relationship between the average diameter of α (Al) grains and the isothermal holding time fitted the formula r − r = K ⋅ t − − ' 3 0 3 , where the coarsening rate K’ varied with the holding temperature, which equaled to 4.288×10-10m3/s and 5.962×10-10m3/s at the holding temperature. A modified model of liquid film migration has been proposed for explaining of 622°C and 631°C respectively the coarsening rate variation with annealing temperature. The diffusion of the solutes as well as vacancies, and the grain boundary tension are responsible for the microstructure evolution of AlCu5MnCdVA cast alloy.
