About this book
This book details aluminum alloys with special focus on the aluminum silicon (Al‐Si) systems – that are the most abundant alloys second only to steel. The authors include a description of the manufacturing principles, thermodynamics, and other main characteristics of Al‐Si alloys. Principles of processing, testing, and in particular applications in the Automotive, Aeronautical and Aerospace fields are addressed.
- Discusses aluminum silicon alloy selection, manufacturing, applications with particular attention to the issues of mechanical properties and soundness;
- Includes key technologies for aluminum silicon alloys such as casting, chemical and electromagnetic processing, casting, powder metallurgy, and applications for automotive, and aerospace use;
- Addresses both, hypo and hypereutectic, alloys and their applications in-depth.
