Aluminum-Silicon Casting Alloys: Atlas of Microfractographs by Malgorzata Warmuzek

By Malgorzata Warmuzek

This atlas offers an in-depth realizing of the metallurgy and fracture habit of aluminum-silicon casting alloys, that are utilized in a wide selection of automobile, aerospace, and customer product purposes. The atlas comprises over three hundred high-definition microfractographs of fracture profiles and fracture surfaces, observed with distinctive descriptions and research of the fracture gains and their value within the choice, processing, houses, and function of the alloy. The microfractographs are defined and labeled based on standards defined intimately within the introductory chapters within the e-book. the criteria opting for the fracture mechanism in those alloys, at the foundation in their actual and mechanical houses and fracture mechanics, are defined and analyzed. The set of micrographs during this atlas contain numerous designated positive factors: class in keeping with the alloy and its processing heritage, unique research of chosen microregions of the fracture floor, reference of the fracture positive aspects to the section elements of the alloy, and excessive answer and excessive microscopic magnification of the SEM photographs. This e-book can be of significant worth to a person all in favour of the choice, processing, program, trying out, or review of aluminum-silicon castings. the objective viewers contains metallurgists, foundry team of workers, failure analysts, dealers of castings, researchers in actual and mechanical metallurgy, scholars, and educators.

Sample text

Fracture of mixed morphology: inter- crystalline fracture on the interface between ␣-aluminum and Al2Cu; transcrystalline, cleavage fracture in the Al5Cu2Mg8Si6 phase and in the silicon; and ductile fracture in the ␣-aluminum solid solution. The micronecks in the deformed ␣-aluminum solid solution regions are visible. 1000ϫ Fig. 23 Transcrystalline fracture in the specimen center zone. The oxide inclusions are visible on the fracture surface. The intercrystalline fracture was formed on the interface between ␣-aluminum and Al2Cu.

11 Fracture profile of specimen after V-notch impact test at room temperature, central zone of the specimen. Profile of the main crack of zigzag shape is formed by the step elements. Shear edge lines and fractured micronecks of the ␣-aluminum solid solution are visible in two-phase regions as well. 400ϫ Fig. 13 Fracture profile of specimen after low-cycle fatigue test. The main crack crossed the two-phase region. Numerous brittle secondary cracks and shrinkage micropores are visible. 0 (AlSi5Cu) / 43 Fig.

On the interface between ␣-aluminum and silicon, cohesion was retained. The shear mechanism of decohesion in the matrix can be assumed. 5600ϫ Fig. 20 Fracture in the boundary zone between eutectic grains. Fracture of cellular and ductile morphology is present in the two-phase regions. In the intermetallic Al6NiCu3 phase, the crack front crossed the cleavage planes. 0 (AlSi13Mg1CuNi) / 37 Fig. 21 Detail of [A] in Fig. 20. The edge of the microneck in the ␣-aluminum solid solution separates the eutectic zones.
