Paper Title:
The Role of Alloy Design in Semi-Solid Casting of Ductile Iron Processed by Inclined Cooling Plate
  Abstract

The inclined Cooling Plate process can be considered as a reliable method for the production of semi-solid ductile cast iron. By utilizing aforesaid method, the main limitation of common semi-solid methods, i.e. Mg fading, will be eliminated. The present research is intended that the importance of alloying design through the inclined cooling plate method and its profound effect on obtaining the optimum solidification range for thixo-forming process have been illustrated. The optimization of solidification range for thixo-forming process has been gained by the simulation in both equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions. Afterwards the alloy selection has been performed amongst several alloying composition with a view to their effect on the thixo-forming process and austempering.
