This monograph summarizes research conducted at Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloy during many decades in part together with Alcoa Inc. The research covered areas of the structure, properties, thermal resistance, corrosion and fatigue of aluminum alloys in industrial manufacturing. Am Emphasis on interconnection among phase equilibria, thermodynamics and microstructure of alloys; Am Systematic overview of all phase diagrams with Al that are important for the development of casting aluminium alloys Am Diagrams (qprocessing windowsq) of important technological properties such as castability, molten metal fluidity, tendency to hot pre-solidification cracking, porosity Am Mathematical models for alloy mechanical properties facilitating the down-selection of best prospect candidates for new alloy development Am New principles of design of eutectic casting aluminium alloys Am Examples of successful novel casting alloy development, including alloys for high-strength applications, alloys with transition metals, and novel alloys utilizing aluminium scrapIn order to be able to make good shaped castings, aluminum alloys need to possess good castability. The term a€œgooda#39;a#39; can be elaborated as a homogeneous casting, uniform in its composition without pores and cracks and with the surfaces anbsp;...
