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

Temperature dependence of mechanical strength in HPDC Mg–6Y–3Zn–1Al alloy with LPSO phase

Temperature dependence of mechanical strength in HPDC Mg–6Y–3Zn–1Al alloy with LPSO phase

Xin Yu a, Yafeng Li b, Yang Bai a, Wei Huang c, Bing Ye a, Xiangyang Kong d Abstract The temperature dependence of mechanical strength including yield strength (YS) and ultimate tensile strength (UTS) in HPDC WZA631 alloy is investigated in a wide temperature range from room temperature (RT) to 350 °C. It is found that at 25–300 °C, YS and UTS do not drop markedly, from 173 MPa and 274 MPa at RT to 113 MPa and 170 MPa at 300 °C, respectively. While
