Discussion of "nucleation mechanism of eutectic phases in aluminum-silicon hypoeutectic alloys"
KTH, School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM), Materials Science and Engineering.
2005 (English)In: Metallurgical and Materials Transactions. A, ISSN 1073-5623, E-ISSN 1543-1940, Vol. 36, no 6, p. 1612-1613Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A previous study tried to prove that each plate of Si in the ordinary Al-Si eutectic is nucleated individually by the action of a small iron-containing particle. The study justified the need for a more complete understanding of the Al-Si eutectic reaction in the absence of chemical modifiers in order to shed light on the complicated mechanisms operating in chemically modified Al-Si alloys. Reacting to this claim, the present authors state that the mechanisms of the ordinary eutectic reaction of Al-Si alloys have been well understood for several decades, thus a very strong evidence is required to justify a revision of that understanding. For their part, the authors of the first study justified their claim for a revision by considering results of thermal analyses, optical microscopy, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and selected area electron diffraction (SAED) analyses and elemental X-ray mapping performed on samples of precisely controlled chemistry.
