Abstract [en]

Large-sized nonmetallic inclusions are usually the main cause for the fracture or cracking of aluminum-based alloy products. Two main aspects were investigated in this study. One is the temperature measurement of bath during aluminum alloy melting process, which can provide the information of temperature distribution of the melt after turning on electromagnetic stirring. The other is the chemical extraction of the inclusions (especially the large-size nonmetallic inclusions) which can work as an alternative tool to study the composition, number, size and morphology of inclusions in the aluminum alloys. Both can be the validation data for the simulation of production process.
