Formation of Bulk Metal Ingots with Homogeneous Fine-Grained Structure Using Novel Semisolid Casting Technique
Novel semisolid casting method to produce bulk metal ingots with homogeneous fine-grained structure is proposed. In the method, the fine-grained particles are subjected to partial melting and compacting. As a result, the ingot structure is constituted mainly by fine-grained particles bonded by inerlayers of solidified melt.
