Casting defects and microstructure distribution characteristics of aluminum alloy cylinder head-gr1

Casting defects and microstructure distribution characteristics of aluminum alloy cylinder head with complex structure

YuanLia, JinxiangLiua, QiangZhangb, WeiqingHuangaa School of Mechanical Engineering, Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing 100081, Chinab Liaoshen Industries Group Co. Ltd, Shenyang 110045, China Abstract Due to the complex structure of the large cylinder head, it is prone to produce uncontrolled casting defects and uneven microstructure distribution. In order to predict the porosity defects and secondary dendrite arm
