|Title:||Effect of dendritic arm spacing on mechanical properties and corrosion resistance of Al 9 Wt Pct Si and Zn 27 Wt Pct Al alloys|
|Abstract:||It has been reported that the mechanical properties and the corrosion resistance (CR) of metallic alloys depend strongly on the solidification microstructural arrangement. The correlation of corrosion behavior and mechanical properties with Microstructure parameters can be very useful for planning solidification conditions in order to achieve a desired level of final properties. The aim of the present work is to investigate the influence of heat-transfer solidification variables on the microstructural array of both Al 9 wt pct Si and Zn 27 wt pct Al alloy castings and to develop correlations between the as-cast dendritic microstructure, CR, and tensile mechanical properties. Experimental results include transient metal/mold heat-transfer coefficient (h(i)), secondary dendrite arm spacing (lambda(2)) corrosion potential (E-Corr), corrosion rate (i(Corr)), polarization resistance (R-l), capacitances values (Z(CPE)), ultimate tensile strength (UTS, sigma(U)), yield strength (YS, sigma(y)), and elongation. It is shown that sigma(U) decreases with increasing lambda(2) while the CR increases with increasing lambda(2), for both alloys experimentally examined. A combined plot of CR and sigma(U) as a function of lambda(2) is proposed as a way to determine an optimum range of secondary dendrite arm spacing that provides good balance between both properties.|
