Paper Title:
Characterization of the Morphology of Si in the Modified Al-Si Alloys
  Abstract

One of the methods of melt-treatment of Al-Si alloys is the modification that plays a very significant role in the development of (mechanical) properties of finished product. There are a lot of well-known processes for the investigation of effectiveness of modification but an objective, exact result cannot be obtained in each case by using these methods. The method suitable for the classifi-cation of modification worked out by us was developed by integrating two methods namely the comparison by means of etalon-images and the integration of measurement of morphological pa-rameters. This method is relatively simple, does not demand lots of measurements and gives reliable results.
