A Fast Method of Determination of Parameters of the Simplified Heat Treatment of the Al-Si Chill Castings

Paweł Murza - Mucha, Marcin Perzyk, Ryszard Szostak


The paper presents results of investigations of the simplified method of supersaturation of Al-Si chill castings utilizing the heat of the poured castings. A simple method of calculation of the process parameters is proposed depending on the casting conditions (type and thickness of the mould coating and the mould's temperature) as well as on the magnitude of the casting (weight and total surface area). Some practical examples of the calculations are given.
