Effects of Forming Processes on Microstructures and Mechanical Properties of A356 Aluminum Alloy Prepared by Self-inoculation Method

Semisolid slurry of A356 aluminum alloy was prepared by Self-Inoculation Method (SIM), and the microstructures and solidification behavior of rheo-forming process in different forming processes were researched. The results indicate that semisolid slurry of A356 aluminum alloy can be prepared by Self-Inoculation Method at 600ºC. Primary α-Al particles with fine and spherical morphology are uniformly distributed when the isothermal holding time of slurry is 3 min. The different forming processes for semisolid rheo-forming can be regarded as the effect of cooling rate on rheo-forming. The prima...
