Effect of Vibration during Solidification to Obtain High Potential Metallic Materials
We have developed vibration assisted solidification process. It is very useful and effective process to obtain high potential metallic materials which have very fine crystal. Aluminum alloys and magnesium alloys are induced electromagnetic or mechanical vibrations during solidification. Both alloys have fine grain and also decrease casting faults after solidification. In this paper, we introduce and discuss the effect and the mechanism of vibration assisted solidification process.
