Book Description :

Pulling together information previously scattered throughout numerous research articles into one detailed resource, Physical Metallurgy of Direct Chill Casting of Aluminum Alloys connects the fundamentals of structure formation during solidification with the practically observed structure and defect patterns in billets and ingots. The author examines the formation of a structure, properties, and defects in the as-cast material in tight correlation to the physical phenomena involved in the solidification and the process parameters. The book draws on the author’s advanced research to provide a unique application of physical metallurgy to direct chill (DC) casting technology. He examines structure and defect formation— including macrosegregation and hot tearing. Each technology-centered chapter provides historical background before reviewing current developments. The author supports his conclusions with computer simulation results that have been correlated with highly progressive experimental data. He presents a logical system of structure and defect formation based on the specific features of the DC casting process. He also demonstrates that the seemingly controversial results reported in literature are, in fact, caused by the different ratio of the same mechanisms. Compiling recent results and data, the book discusses the fundamentals of solidification together with metallurgical and technological aspects of DC casting. It gives new insight and perspective into DC casting research.

The set of micrographs in this atlas include several unique features: classification according to the alloy and its processing history, detailed analysis of selected microregions of the fracture surface, reference of the fracture features to the phase constituents of the alloy, and high resolution and high microscopic magnification of the SEM images. This book will be of great value to anyone involved in the selection, processing, application, testing, or evaluation of aluminum-silicon castings. The target audience includes metallurgists, foundry personnel, failure analysts, purchasers of castings, researchers in physical and mechanical metallurgy, students, and educators.

Book Description :

The utilization of aluminum die casting as enclosures where internal equipment is rotating inside of the casting and could fracture requires a strong housing to restrain the fractured parts. A typical example would be a supercharger. In case of a failure, unless adequately contained, fractured parts could injure people operating the equipment. A number of potential reinforcement materials were investigated. The initial work was conducted in sand molds to create experimental conditions that promote prolonged contact of the reinforcing material with molten aluminum. Bonding of Aluminum bronze, Cast iron, and Ni-resist inserts with various electroplated coatings and surface treatments were analyzed. Also toughening of A354 aluminum cast alloy by steel and stainless steel wire mesh with various conditions was analyzed. A practical approach to reinforcement of die cast aluminum components is to use a reinforcing steel preform. Such performs can be fabricated from steel wire mesh or perforated metal sheet by stamping or deep drawing. A hemispherical, dome shaped casting was selected in this investigation. A deep drawing die was used to fabricate the reinforcing performs. The tendency of aluminum cast enclosures to fracture could be significantly reduced by installing a wire mesh of austenitic stainless steel or a punched austenitic stainless steel sheet within the casting. The use of reinforcements made of austenitic stainless steel wire mesh or punched austenitic stainless steel sheet provided marked improvement in reducing the fragmentation of the casting. The best strengthening was obtained with austenitic stainless steel wire and with a punched stainless steel sheet without annealing this material. Somewhat lower results were obtained with the annealed punched stainless steel sheet. When the annealed 1020 steel wire mesh was used, the results were only slightly improved because of the lower mechanical properties of this unalloyed steel. The lowest results were obtained with unreinforced 356 aluminum casting. Good strength can be obtained with a sound die casting without any defects produced by squeeze casting. The use of higher pressure to produce the squeeze casting has been shown to increase the strength of a hemispherical dome casting. This dome shape casting has been produced both with and without reinforcement and tested to determine its pressure resistance under internal pressure of water. Only a slight improvement in strength could be determined because of water leaks at the seal between hemispherical dome and its flat supporting side. However, when the ability of the casting was tested under the compressive force of a plunger, the strengthening effect of wire mesh or sheet was evident. Higher loads to failure were obtained because of the reinforcement of the stainless steel wire and punched sheet. Rather than a sudden failure occurring, the reinforcement of the stainless steel wire or the punched hard stainless steel sheet held the material together and prevented any loss of the fractured casting to the surroundings. Unalloyed steel did not have the required strength or mechanical properties to increase the properties of the casting.

Book Description :

Ductile materials such as aluminum alloys have been the primary material of choice for structural components of aircraft such as fuselage, wing, etc. because of their light weight, ease of forming and resistance to failure under shock loads. There are two primary types of aluminum alloys used in aircraft: cast alloys and wrought alloys. Majority of the traditionally used cast aluminum alloys in aircraft manufacturing are the Al-Cu or Al-Si-Mg alloys including A214, A355, A356 and E 357. Aluminum castings are typically produced using green sand, permanent mold casting or die casting. However, aluminum castings are susceptible to porosity defects. Porosity is a microscopic void or hole found in a casting. To eliminate micro-porosity defects in aluminum castings, multiple heat treatments can be used. In particular hot isostatic pressing (HIP) can be used to effectively to remove sub-surface porosity in complex shaped castings. HIPing process includes the use of elevated temperature and the application of a hydrostatic pressure via pressurized gas. Previous work has demonstrated that widely used aluminum casting alloys such as A356, A204, A206 have shown considerable improvement in mechanical properties when HIPed. However, no study has been done on aluminum casting alloy E357. The E357 alloy combines excellent casting characteristics with improved strength compared to the widely use A356 alloy. Silicon combines with the magnesium in these alloys to form Mg2Si which strengthens the alloys during final precipitation heat treatments. To understand the effects of hot isostatic pressing on the performance of casting Aluminum E 357 alloy tensile testing and charpy impact testing were carried out on cast E357 test specimens which were divided into three groups- HIPed and T6 heat treated specimens,Homogenized and T6 heat treated specimens and Non HIPed and T6 heat treated specimens. Samples were evaluated to understand the effects of processing cycles on the resultant mechanical properties and microstructure with respect to microporosity and size of silicon particles. This study was conducted as an effort to characterize impact of Hot Isostaic Pressing on aluminum E357 casting for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. It was observed that, HIPing process helped in reducing %porosity by 37.83% and increased size of silicon particle has by 18.08%. Significant increase in %elongation was also observed in HIPed samples as compared to non HIPed samples. Overall HIPing process and subsequent heat treatment helps to improve % elongation significantly although the improvements in ultimate tensile strength and yield strength is not significant. Microstructure analysis reveals that HIPing results in a noticeable reduction in % porosity which tends to increase mechanical properties and reduce property variation.
