Study on Thermal Physical Properties of Al-Si8-Cu2-Mg Alloy


Article Preview

Parts of thermal physical properties of Al-Si8-Cu2-Mg alloy were studied. The curves were plotted showing the relationship between density, specific heat capacity, coefficient of thermal expansion and the variation of temperature for the first time with this alloy. The results show that the density was decreased when the temperature was raised, but the specific heat capacity and the coefficient of thermal expansion were first increased and then decreased. The solidus-liquidus temperatures, latent heat of fusion were studied, and the results show that the melting temperature range of this alloy was 507-596°C.
