Assessment of aluminium steel casting fluidity


This text presents the methodology and results of testing aluminium steel casting fluidity obtained in the bar test. These results have been compared with the fluidity of chrome-nickel-copper steel casting tested under the same conditions. The course of performed fusions has also been presented. In addition to dilatometric testing also crystallisation and cooling recording has been performed with determination of the liquidus and solidus temperatures. Photographs of the resulting micro-structure of the tested steel castings are also presented.
