Pagination or Media Count:
Test of welded areas in heavily chilled A-356-T6 aluminum alloy were conducted to determine feasibility of welding foundry defects. The results showed a mechanical property level commensurate with the retained magnesium content and the soundness of the weld deposit. All sound welds, when heat treated, met the minimum mechanical properties specified for critical areas on the design drawing.
