Inoculation of Al Alloys with Ti
2005 (English)In: TRANSACTIONS OF THE INDIAN INSTITUTE OF METALS, 2005, Vol. 58, no 4, 553-556 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The solubility of Ti in the liquid in equilibrium with Al3Ti is discussed. From this discussion, it is suggested that Al3Ti is the phase nucleating Al. The proposal is based on evaluation of enthalpy and entropy of formation of Al3Ti of experiments reported in literature. The heat of formation was found to be dependent on the processing. The variation of solubility is an effect of lattice defects in Al3Ti. The effect of B on inoculation is discussed. TiB2 acts as an inoculant of Al3Ti and Al is nucleated on Al3Ti.
