Alignment of Primary Al3Ni Phases in Hypereutectic Al-Ni Alloys with Various Compositions under High Magnetic Field Gradients
The microstructural changes of the primary Al3Ni phases in hypereutectic Al-Ni alloys solidified under various high magnetic field gradients were investigated. It was found that the application of a magnetic field gradient induced an aligned structure of the primary Al3Ni phases similar to those in a high uniform magnetic field. However, the high magnetic field gradient showed more obvious effect on the alignment of the primary Al3Ni phases than the uniform magnetic field, although this effect strongly depended on the alloy composition.
