Effect of Homogenization on the Deformation of a Cast Al-Si-Mg Alloy.

What is it about?

It is very common that aluminum 6000 series have intermetallic particles Al-Mg-Si-Fe which affect the mechanical behavior of the alloy, so we study the effect of the Homogenization on these particles and finally on the deformation and cracking of these alloys.

Why is it important?

we determine which are the main factors in the creation and growth of the intermetallic phases Al-Mg-Si-Fe and its importance in the cracking during the deformation of the alloy.

aluminum alloys are used every day, but there is still much to develop in this material, this publication tries to contribute in this development that will serve to improve the strength and machinability of the 6000 series aluminum alloys.
