    On the Residual Stresses and Microstructure Formation of Aluminum-Silicon Cast Alloys2011Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Cast aluminum-silicon alloys are being increasingly used in automotive and aerospace industries for critical structure applications because of their excellent castability, low density, acceptable mechanical properties and low cost. Different casting and heat treatment parameters largely affect the microstructure and residual stress of the components, which in turn, has a great impact on their mechanical properties. In cast components, residual stresses are those stresses which may remain in the casting after it has been removed from the mould. The magnitude and distribution of the residual stresses can be critical to performance and should be considered in the design of a component. This work has been devoted to study the microstructure formation, residual stresses, and mechanical properties of aluminum-silicon castings.

    The effects of casting parameters on the microstructure of the selected alloys were investigated by means of optical and scanning electron microscopes. With the help of EDS, WDS, EBSD, and quantitative analysis techniques, it was found that solidification rate, modification, superheat, casting temperature can significantly affect the nucleation and growth, morphology and chemical composition of different phases. Based on the performed microsegregation analysis, a clear correlation between the concentration of silicon in the primary phase and cooling rate was found.

    Tensile tests at room and elevated temperatures in addition to microhardness experiments were performed to analyse the behaviour of the alloys under mechanical loads. The results showed that elongation to fracture, modulus of elasticity, and ultimate tensile strength of the tested alloys are temperature dependent. Moreover, the obtained information was used to establish a good model for simulating the behaviour of the cast alloys, as well as the mechanical properties and residual stresses.

    The type and magnitude of residual stresses were mainly evaluated by strain gauge, sectioning, thermal analysis methods, and was also simulated by finite element analysis using Abaqus software. It was found that casting parameters such as superheat, mould hardness, casting temperature, modification, and the casting geometry, can influence the accumulated residual stress in the component. The thermal treatment experiments also indicated that the base temperature of the cast part before fast cooling, maximum temperature difference within the component, and cooling water flow can influence the residual stress. Extensive simulation work done by Abaqus showed that the results obtained by simulation are in a reasonable relationship with the experimental measurements, considering the linearly elastic/linearly isotropically hardening plastic model.

    Abstract [en]

    This article is devoted to a study of the influence of solidification rate on the crystallographic orientation of eutectic components with respect to primary α-Al in the tested hypoeutectic alloy. Electron backscattering diffraction (EBSD) patterns were produced from Al-Si cast specimens, solidified with different cooling rates, and prepared by ion etch polishing as a complementary method after mechanical polishing. Results indicated a strong orientation relationship between the primary α-Al and eutectic aluminum phase at all cooling rates. It is also found that the silicon eutectic flakes are nucleated heterogeneously in the interdendritic eutectic liquid. Increasing the cooling rate from 2 to 80 mm/min is observed to be effective in lowering the intensity of relationship between the primary α-Al and eutectic aluminum phase and changing the misorientation angle clustering between primary α-Al and eutectic silicon phase in the interval 41-60 to lower angle intervals.

    (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The effects of cooling rate on the as-cast microstructure and hardness of an Al - Si alloy was studied. To obtain different cooling rates, a special gradient casting furnace was designed and built. The microstructural analysis was carried out on as-cast samples to investigate the morphology (size, shape, and distribution) of the present phases. By using an analytical scanning electron microscope, the microsegregation of different alloying elements in the centre of aluminium dendrites was investigated. To study the effect of cooling rate on the mechanical properties, hardness of the samples and microhardness of the primary α-Al dendrites were measured. The results showed that the morphology of the silicon eutectic, refinement of the intermetallics, and the size of primary dendrites are cooling rate dependent. Moreover, a clear correlation between the concentration of silicon concentration in the centre of the aluminium dendrites and cooling rate was found.

    (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, experiments were carried out to develop insights into  and understanding of the residual stresses that can arise during different thermal treatments of Al-Si components. The study consisted of two steps: experimental measurement of the residual stresses accumulated in the components and simulation of the results by finite element analysis. A special cooling apparatus was designed and built in order to perform selective cooling of the component. In the simulation step, the tensile behavior and parameters such as Young’s modulus values determined by tensile tests at different temperatures and the recorded cooling curves in the first step were used as input for the Abaqus software. The experimental results obtained by thermal analysis and residual stress measurement showed that by choosing a specific holding temperature before quenching, the value of residual stress increases linearly with flow rate of water spray coolant. On the other hand, for a constant value of cooling water flow rate, the maximum temperature difference between the middle and side bars of the test specimen (ΔTmax) and residual stress level decrease when the value of starting temperature of cooling decreases. It was shown that the strain gage method and thermal analysis are reliable techniques for measuring thermal residual stresses and prediction of residual strains in Al-Si components, respectively. It was also shown that the results obtained by simulation are reasonably in acceptable agreement with the experimentally measurements.

    2009 (English)In: Advances in X-Ray Analysis (CD-ROM), ISSN 1097-0002, Vol. 52, p. 553-560Article in journal (Refereed) Published
    Abstract [en]

    Different casting parameters can change the microstructure and residual stresses of castings. The microstructure of Al-Si cast alloys is influenced by the morphology of silicon particles (shape, size and distribution), aluminum grain size and dendrite parameters. Dimensional changes resulting from casting caused by residual stresses can particularly affect the quality of near net shape castings. In this research, the influence of casting process parameters such as modification, superheat temperature, mould hardness and mould design on residual stresses and microstructure of an Al-Si-Mn alloy have been investigated. Experiments were conducted with different superheat, mould hardness, modification with Al-10Sr and two different casting designs. The micro structural changes associated with these parameters have been studied by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and image analysis. The type and extent of residual stresses of all samples were determined using the sectioning method. The results show that all of the mentioned casting parameters have clear effects on residual stresses. The residual stresses decrease with lowered superheat, temperature and mould hardness. It was found that the residual stress increases both with adding a eutectic modifier and with change of casting design. It wasalso found that microstructure and mechanical properties are  influenced significantly by the mentioned parameter.

    Abstract [en]

    Improved mechanical and physical properties of an Al-Si alloy as a well-known casting alloy is strongly dependent upon the morphology of silicon particles, Al grains and also type of intermetallics which are in turn a function of alloy composition, solidification rate and heat treatment. This study aims at investigating the influence of the different solidification conditions (high pressure die, gradient and sand cast) and heat treatment on the microstructure (dendrite parameters, silicon particle morphology, intermetallic compounds), mechanical properties and fracture surface appearance of Al- 9Si- 4Mn alloy. To identify the features of microstructure and fracture surface analysis, a combination of optical metallography, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) have been employed. The results show that the cooling rate has a strong effect on the evolution of intermetallics, morphology of the silicon and dendrite parameters.

    Abstract [en]

    The soundness and the performance of castings are significantly affected by generation and accumulation of residual stresses. This has been proven that mechanical properties and residual stresses level of the casting components are affected by thermal gradient across the casting component during cooling and some intrinsic physical properties of the material. In the present work, microstructural development, mechanical properties, residual stress evolution and cooling curves associated with different legs of a mixed–section grid castings have been investigated employing scanning electron microscope, optical microscope, 3D measurement equipment, computerized thermal data acquisition instrument and tensile testing machine. Experimental results show that the accumulated residual stress in circular, triangular and rectangular grid shapes is increasing respectively. From the results it can be seen that there are clear influences of grid’s geometry on the microstructure and mechanical properties. The geometrical stiffness can affect a lot the residual stress level and the casting modulus has a big influence on the microstructure and mechanical properties.

    This study aims at investigating the influence of the heat treatment process on microstructure, mechanical properties and residual stresses in a high pressure die cast (HPDC) of an aluminum alloy component. Two series of high pressure die cast components containing mainly Al -Si 8.4- Mn 0.43 were tested. The first group of components was as cast and the second heat treated. X-ray diffraction, quantitative metallography and mechanical testing methods were used to determine the residual stresses, microstructural features and mechanical properties respectively. Results indicate that the amount of residual stresses varies depending on heat treatment process. The selected heat treatment process can also change the microstructure and mechanical properties.

    Analysis of residual stress development during thermal processing of Al-Si alloys2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Residuals stresses can be present in almost every industrial component. Manufacturing processes such as casting, welding, and heat treatment are the most common causes of residual stresses. Thermal residual stresses could be developed in a component during heat treatment process as a result of non-uniform heating or cooling operations. In this study, experiments were carried out to develop insights into and understanding of the residual stresses that can arise during thermal treatments of Al-Si components. Due to the complexity of residual stresses analysis in real components, a common mixed-section casting was employed. In order to fulfill the requirements of performing different thermal treatments, a special cooling apparatus was designed and built. A number of the casting components of an Al-Si alloy were annealed for stress relief, and then removed from the furnace and cooled with different water flow rates. Then, the amount of accumulated residual stresses in the components was measured relaxation of stress using cutting. Thermal analysis and residual stress measurement for different thermal treatment regimes showed that by choosing a specific holding temperature before direct cooling, the value of residual stress increases linearly with flow rate of cooling. On the other hand, for a constant value of cooling water flow, ∆Tmax and residual stress level decreases when the value of base temperature of furnace decreases. Moreover, the cutting method can be a suitable method for measuring thermal residual stresses in Al-Si components and thermal analysis is a powerful technique to predict residual stresses.
