Abstract

The effect of ultrasonication on the solidification microstructure of recycled Al-alloys is investigated using custom Al–2Si–2Mg-1.2Fe-xMn alloys (x = 0.5 and 1%, in wt.%) through cooling curve measurement, optical and electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry and com...
