Abstract: In this work, the age-hardening of Al- 1.0 mass% Mg2Si- 0.4 mass% Mg – 0.5 mass% Ag (ex.Mg-Ag alloy) alloy has been investigated. It showed increase of hardness and age-hardening response. Precipitates in this alloy aged at 523 K have been observed by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and classified into five types based on characteristics in their HRTEM images.

Abstract: Semi-solid slurry of phosphor bronze with fine solid granules for rheocasting was tried to make by passing the low-superheat melt through an opening between a rotating regular octagonal rotor and a circumscribed chill block. The effect of rotational speed on the structure of a solidified small ingot was mainly investigated. The ingot structures were changed from the dendrite of rotor-free condition to the rosette at the rotational speed of 50rpm, and the granular with a mean size of about 50μm at higher than150rpm. The slurries made at 150rpm were rheocast to a cylindrical shape cavity within a die kept at different temperatures from 573 to 1173K by the use of a high pressure casting machine. Microstructures of rheocast cylindrical shape products were granular at the die temperatures lower than 773K and changed to grained one as like recrystallized at higher than 973K. Together with the microstructure change, poor tensile ductility less than 3% at the lowest die temperature was improved up to about 60% at 973K.

Abstract: Rheo-extrusions of A7075 aluminum alloy were carried out utilizing semi-solid slurries with different solid granule sizes, which were made by a simple method combined a thin upright tube with a water-cooled tube. Every structure of slurries was granular and average solid granule sizes could be controlled by 0.05 to 0.11mm. These slurries were extruded to round bars at extrusion ratio of 36 and press ram speed of 10mm/s mainly, just after cooling to 833K ( fs > 0.9 ). All of the slurries could easily be extruded to bars with smooth surfaces at much low extrusion forces than those of hot-extrusions. Tensile strength of rheo-extruded bars after solution treatment increased with decreasing of the solid granule size. Peak hardness level at T6 condition equivalent to that of hot-extrusion could be obtained at the finest solid granule size.

Abstract: Semi-solid slurry with fine solid granules for rheocasting was made from lead-free bismuth bronze by passing the low-superheat melt through an opening between a rotating regular octagonal rotor and a circumscribed chill block. We mainly investigated the effect of rotational speed on the structure of a solidified small ingot. The ingot structures changed from the dendrite of rotor-free condition to the rosette at the rotational speed of 50rpm and to the granular with a mean grain size of about 50m at higher than100 rpm. If the slurry made at 100rpm was rheocast to a disk shape by the use of a high pressure casting machine, the disk had almost uniform granular structures from the center to the edge regions.

Abstract: The effect of Al-addition on the mechanism of phase decomposition from β1 to α-phase in Cu-40at.%Zn alloy (base alloy) has been investigated using hardness measurement and HRTEM observation. The peak hardness during annealing and the number density of α-phase in Al-bearing alloy were the same as those in the base alloy. Many striations which have been considered as the periodicity of 9R structure were observed in the α-phase of the Al-bearing alloy. There were a lot of striations in the α-phase at the early annealing time, and the number of these striations decreased with increasing annealing time. The rate of decreasing of this striation in the α-phase of the Al-bearing alloy was the slower than that of the base alloy. According to the analysis of the selected area electron diffraction (SAED) patterns obtained for these α-phase in those alloys, transition time from the 9R structure to fcc structure t (9R-fcc) of has been detected by the changing of angles in SAED patterns. The t (9R-fcc) of α-phase in the Al-bearing alloy showed the slower than the base alloy.
