Al-enabled properties distribution prediction for high-pressure die casting Al-Si alloy

Al-enabled properties distribution prediction for high-pressure die casting Al-Si alloy

Yu-Tong Yang, Zhong-Yuan Qiu, Zhen Zheng, Liang-Xi Pu, Ding-Ding Chen, Jiang Zheng, Rui-Jie Zhang, Bo Zhang & Shi-Yao Huang Abstract High-pressure die casting (HPDC) is one of the most popular mass production processes in the automotive industry owing to its capability for part consolidation. However, the nonuniform distribution of mechanical properties in large-sized HPDC products adds complexity to part property evaluation. Therefore, a methodology

Effects of Cr-addition on ageing response of an Al–Si–Mg die cast alloy

Effects of Cr-addition on ageing response of an Al–Si–Mg die cast alloy

Yiwu Xu ab1, Yuxin Zhang c1, Jinping Li d, Pan Wang e, Jianfeng Wang e, Houwen Chen c, Houqing Sun f, Hongyi Zhan e Abstract Chromium (Cr) is rarely added to Al–Si die cast alloys as it has a strong tendency to induce the formation of coarse-sized sludge particles. In the present study, high pressure die-cast samples made of Al-7wt.%Si–Cr–Mg alloys with varied Fe contents (0.11 wt%, 0.26 wt% and 0.32 wt%) were tensile tested under as-cast and T5 heat-treated conditions, in comparison

Effect of Mold Temperature and Pouring Temperature on the Crack Behavior of Composite Water-Soluble Salt Cores

Effect of Mold Temperature and Pouring Temperature on the Crack Behavior of Composite Water-Soluble Salt Cores

Jingkai Zhang1, Yang Li1, Lai Song1, Weihua Liu1 & Xue Zou1 Abstract This study analyzes the effects of different pouring temperatures and mold temperatures on the crack behavior of NaCl–Na2SO4 composite water-soluble salt cores (WSSC). Firstly, calculate the solid fraction during the solidification process of the salt core using the Newton baseline method. Then predict the sensitivity of the salt core

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

Benjamin E. MacDonald1, Stuart Wiesner2, Ryan Holdsworth1, Carl Söderhjelm1 & Diran ApelianORCID:orcid.org/0000-0001-9743-606X1 Abstract The effects on phase equilibria of La and Fe additions to the Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system are explored under high-pressure die casting conditions. The addition of La to Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system only reacts with Ce synergistically to promote the formation of the Al11(Ce,La)3 intermetallic phase as predicted by CALculation
