EN AW-2024 Wrought Aluminum Alloy Processed by Casting with Crystallization under Pressure

Open access


By using the wrought aluminum alloys can be created castings with higher mechanical properties than the castings made of standard foundry aluminum alloys, but it is necessary to handle the process of making sound castings without any defects such as hot tears and shrinkage porosity. In experiments, we have been studied of wrought aluminum alloy EN AW-2024 which has been processed by the casting with crystallization under pressure with forced flow. Castings were heat treated by standard T6 heat treatment.
