Paper Title:
Effect of Si on As-Cast Microstructure in Quasicrystalline Al-Cu -Fe Alloy
  Abstract

Effect of Si on the forming ability of quasicrystalline phase in Al65Cu20Fe15 alloys fabricated under conventional casting conditions has been studied using X-ray diffraction (XRD), optical microscopy (OM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show that under the conventional casting conditions, it is found that the addition of certain amount of Si into the Al-Cu-Fe melts can change the formation of Al62.5Cu25Fe12.5 quasicrystals during the solidification process. Compared with Al65Cu20Fe15 alloy, Al64.5Cu20Fe15Si0.5 alloy has smaller volume fraction of β phase solidifying initially, larger volume fraction of the quasicrystal phase generating in the subsequent peritectic reaction, and larger volume fraction of ω phase solidifying finally. Both experimental results and the theory of Hume-Rothery show that addition of Si can promote the formation ability of the icosahedral quasicrystalline Al62.5Cu25Fe12.5 phase in Al-Cu-Fe alloy.
