Effect of Transfer Velocity on Porosity of Lotus-Type Porous Aluminum Fabricated by Continuous Casting Technique
Lotus-type porous aluminum was fabricated by continuous casting technique in mixture gas of hydrogen and argon at various transfer velocities in order to understand formation process of pores. The porosity and pore diameter decrease with increasing transfer velocity. The transfer velocity dependence of the porosity in lotus aluminum is different from that in other lotus metals such as stainless steel and copper. It is considered that the difference is attributed to lower solubility in aluminum than that in other metals.
