Effect of Out-Phase Electromagnetic Field on the HDC Casting Process of Commercial Aluminum

Abstract:

Article Preview

Commercial aluminum ingot with the diameters of 100 mm is produced by conventional out-phase electromagnetic field HDC casting process. The out-phase electromagnetic field is applied on the HDC casting process. The effect of out-phase electromagnetic filed on the ingot surface and structure is investigated. The result shows that the out-phase electromagnetic field is more effective in improving the upper surface, while, has little function on the bottom surface. The macro/microstructure of the ingot is changed by the out-phase electromagnetic field. Very long and coarse columnar grains evolve to short and thin columnar grains with the application of the out-phase electromagnetic field.
