Paper Title:
Thixoforming of Steel – Influence of Thermal Parameters
  Abstract

This paper presents experimental results on steel thixoforming. The influence of thermal effects on the semi-solid response is analysed through the influence of thermal exchanges with tools and environment. Several rheological experiments such as compression, extrusion or radial filling test were developed to understand the semi-solid steel behaviour and determine the parameters that have a major influence on thixoforming. Actually, in our experiments, the temperature of the slug and consequently the solid fraction were found first order parameters while; the morphology of the solid phase plays a minor role.
