Paper Title:
The Effect of Electromagnetic Stirring on the Semi-Solid Microstructure of High-Melting Alloys
  Abstract

Most of the work reported at this conference concerned the semi-solid processing of low melting point alloys, and in particular light alloys of aluminum and magnesium. It also can be true for the higher melting point alloys, such as Cu alloys. The purpose of this paper is to develop a semi-solid microstructure of Cu alloys using electromagnetic stirring applicable for squirrel cage rotor of induction motor. The size of primary solid particle and the degree of sphericity as a function of the variation in cooling rate, stirring speed, and holding time were observed. By applying electromagnetic stirring, primary solid particles became finer and rounder relative to as-cast sample. As the input Hz increased from 30Hz to 40Hz, particle size decreased. The size of primary solid particle was found to be decreased with increasing cooling rate. Also, it decreased with stirring up to 3 minutes but increased above that point. The degree of sphericity became closer to be 1 with hold time. Semi-solid microstructure of Cu alloys, one of the high melting point alloys, could be controlled by electromagnetic stirring.
