Abstract: In this study, the influence of magnesium content on thermal and structural parameters during the unsteady-state unidirectional solidification of Al-Mg alloys is analyzed. Using a special device, Al-Mg alloys containing 5, 10, and 15 wt% Mg were submitted to unidirectional solidification. Using a data acquisition system, the temperature variations along the casting during solidification were measured. From these results, the variations of solidification parameters as growth rate of dendrite tips, thermal gradient, cooling rate, and local solidification time were determined. The variation of global heat transfer coefficient at metal/mould interface was estimated through the adjustment of experimental temperature variation close to the interface and numerical predictions. Primary and secondary dendrite arms spacing variations during solidification were measured by optical microscopy. From these results, comparative analysis were developed to determine the influence of magnesium content.
