A New Method of Characterization on Microstructure of Casting Alloy
Microstructural characteristics of A356 alloy prepared by low superheat pouring were researched, and the fractal dimensions of morphology of primary phase in the alloy was calculated. The results indicated that morphology of primary phase in A356 alloy belonged to fractal structure, and the microstructural characteristics in the alloy can be characterized by fractal dimension. There were the different fractal dimensions for the morphology of primary phase prepared by the different process.
