  1. 1. Characteristics of cast aluminium-silicon alloys : microstructures and mechanical properties

    Author : Salem Seifeddine; Birger Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Aluminium; Mocrostructure; Porosity; Tensile properties; Modelling; Chemical process and manufacturing engineering; Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik; Aluminium; microstructure; porosity; tensile properties; modelling.; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Applications of aluminium alloys are spreading in many industrial fields due to the excellent combination of castability, mechanical performance and lightness assured by such material. This project aims to establish a methodology in bringing the foundry process closer to the casting designer, and thereby leading to a more reliable and more optimised design. READ MORE

  2. 2. High performing cast aluminium-silicon alloys

    Author : Martin Riestra; Salem Seifeddine; Ehsan Ghassemali; Jessica Elfsberg; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aluminium cast alloys; melt quality; eutectic modification; grain refinement; microstructure; tensile properties;

    Abstract : The need to produce lighter components due to environmental aspects and the development of electrical vehicles represents an opportunity for cast aluminium-silicon alloys. With high specific strength, good castability, high corrosion resistance and recyclability, these alloys offer an attractive combination of properties as an alternative to steel, cast iron and titanium-based components in certain applications.

  3. 3. Imperfections in Recycled Aluminium-Silicon Cast Alloys

    Author : Anton Bjurenstedt; Anders Jarfors; Salem Seifeddine; Pål Schmidt; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Imperfections; Recycled cast Al-Si alloy; Fe-rich particles; Melt quality; Fractography; Differential scanning calorimetry.;

    Abstract : In striving to produce high quality cast components from recycled aluminium alloys,imperfections have to be considered, because recycled aluminium usually containsmore of it. However, there are great energy savings to be made by using recycledaluminium; as little as 5% of the energy needed for primary aluminium productionmay be required. READ MORE

  4. 4. Deformation Behaviour of A356-T7 Cast Aluminium Alloys Used in High Specific Power IC Engine Cylinder Heads

    Author : Elanghovan Natesan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aluminium alloys; fatigue; constitutive models; thermo-mechanical fatigue; a356; cylinder head;

    Abstract : The constant development drive towards higher specific power and lower displacement engines in recent years to produce environmentally friendly high-performance cars has placed increasingly high thermal loads on the internal combustion engine materials. Further, the advent of hybrid power trains placing higher demands on quick starts and a rapid approach to maximum power necessitates the automotive industry to move towards a more robust computational thermo-mechanical fatigue life prediction methodology to develop reliable engines and reduce developmental costs.
