Crystallization of Aluminium Alloys


Article Preview

The structure and properties of cast metals and alloys are in a high degree influenced by crystallization conditions. By the technological interventions into the crystallization process the mechanical properties and structural parameters of castings can be enhanced. The present contribution deals with the regularities of crystallization of alloys Al-Si produced by die casting process.
