Effects of AlN Particles and Electromagnetic Stirring on As-Cast Structure of AZ31 Alloys
A fine grain size generally leads to improved structural uniformity of magnesium alloys. AlN has been identified as a potential grain refiner and electromagnetic stirring may have great effects on microstructure and grain growth. This study will be focused on the effects of AlN particles and electromagnetic stirring on the as-cast structure of AZ31 alloys.The grain refinement mechanism of both methods on magnesium alloy and their interaction effects are also discussed.
