Smelting of Al-Li Alloy Containing High Li by Micro-Gravity Electromagnetic Force Simulation Facilities and Texture Study
The electromagnetic micro-gravity simulation smelting is a new preparation technology of Al-Li alloy containing high Li. In the aluminum lithium binary system, based the principle of electromagnetic force applied on the metal alloy melt, the Al-Li alloy was smelt and cast at 0.5T and 800°C with home-made apparatus. Through composition analysis by means of XPS, surface microscopic morphology with SEM and density measurement, the results show that the low density, 10wt% of Li in Al, homogeneous lithium distribution and compact and uniform and compact microstructure Al-Li alloy can prepared by using the technique of electromagnetic simulating micro-gravity method.
