Microstructure and mechanical behaviour of Al-based alloy obtained by liquid forging technique

Al-based alloy, produced by a patented, namely Liquid forging, process is studied for automotive application. The patented procedure leads to produce high resistance and high toughness components with the possibility to realise T6 heat treatment. The influence of some process parameter (filling rate and time) on the alloy properties is investigated. The benefits of T6 heat treatment on the performance of Al-based components is considered. The alloy morphological and mechanical characterization has been realised in different conditions and a comparison of these data has been carried out.
