Abstract:

Emphasis of the work is on development of a process or processes involving casting of semi-solid alloys. During the six month period of research covered by the report, emphasis was on developing casting systems which combine 1 a method of producing a semi-solid slurry continuously, 2 a gel or collection chamber, and 3 a casting machine. A large number of castings were produced of a low melting point alloy, and of a copper base alloy. A limited number were also produced of a ferrous alloy fe-2.5C-3.1Si. Other work reported is on development of a process for electromagnetically injecting semi-solid or liquid alloys into metal mold and on thermal analysis of mold behavior in casting of semi-solid ferrous alloys.
