Paper Title:
Microstructure and Fatigue Properties of Aero Aluminum Alloy Repaired by Laser Melt Casting
  Abstract

The paper presents a study of renovation of aerial aluminum alloy (LY12CZ) by laser melt casting with Al matrix composite powder. The microstructure of the melt casting zone was investigated, and the fatigue contrast test was carried out between the repaired specimens and the undamaged specimens. It is found that the melt casting zone consists of equiaxed crystals and columnar crystals. The equiaxed crystals distribute in the deposited layer and the crystal size is about 3~4μm. The columnar crystals whose axial direction size comes to 30μm~40μm exist near the interface with its crystallographic axis perpendicular to the interface. The fatigue life of specimens repaired by laser melt casting was shorter than no-damage specimens to a large extant, because of the flaws in the deposited layer engendered the origins of cracks; the columnar shape grains at the bottom of casting zone were easy to split under the tensile stress; the residual stress after the melt casting accelerated the initiation and growth of the cracks.
