Semi-Solid A356 Alloy Slurry Prepared by Slightly Electromagnetic Stirring with Ti-Based Refiner
The semi-solid A356 alloy slurry is prepared by slightly electromagnetic stirring with Ti-based refiner. The effects of the refiner on the morphology and the grain size of the primary phase in the slurry are researched. The results indicate that the slurry with particle-like and rosette-like primary phases can be prepared by slightly electromagnetic stirring with the refiner. Compared with the A356 alloys without the refiner, the grain size and particle morphology of primary phase as well as the distribution of the grain with particle-like or rosette-like along radial in the ingot in A356 are markedly improved by the refiner.
