Abstract

This work covered the study of energy profiles as influenced by solidification on sand cast 6063 aluminum alloy. Temperature is an important parameter, most especially in foundry technology that influences properties and morphology of cast products. Different pouring temperatures of 680oC, 740oC and 780oC were considered. Mechanical energy expended and the quantity of heat evolved was evaluated from results obtained from tensile test experiments carried on the three samples. Relationship between change in coefficient of thermal expansion and change in applied tensile load were derived; it was observed that the maximum energy expended before fracture for samples decreased with increasing pouring temperature. Increasing pouring temperature decreased the amount of energy to be expended during deformation. This also influenced the change in heat evolved per time.
