  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.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. On Inter-bar Currents in Induction Motors with Cast Aluminium and Cast Copper Rotors

    Author : Alexander Stening; Chandur Sadarangani; Ola Aglén; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Induction motors; Inter-bar currents; Copper rotors; Aluminium rotors; Starting torque; Asynchronous torques; Starting current; Stray losses; Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a study of the effects of inter-bar currents on inductionmotor starting performance and stray-load losses. The work is focused on theperformance differences between aluminium and copper casted rotors.A method to predict the stator current when starting direct-on-line isdeveloped. READ MORE
