Thermal analysis is a quality control tool in aluminium casting plants. The cooling curve and its derivatives analysis offer parameters that can be used in simulation software programs to improve simulation accuracy and to control the metallurgical quality of cast parts. This paper shows the calculation of thermo-physical, solidification and precipitated phases characteristics of AlSi10Mg1 cast aluminium alloy. Minor alloying elements are included, comparing the results with the results obtained by using other methods as the Silicon Equivalent (SiEQ), showing a very good correlation with the different developed formula. © 2016, The WFO (The World Foundry Organization Ltd).

In different areas of science such as medicine, biology and engineering the image analysis is widely used. Quantitative measuring by the image analysis has also found application in metal materials science, especially in metallographic microstructure analysis. The measuring of the linear and area dimensions of the microconstituents in the metal material structure performed by the image analysis is presented in the paper. The effects of the heat treatment temperature on the brittle phase content in the structure of the heat resistant Ni-Cr-Co-W alloy were analysed. Investigation of the influence of the alloying elements content in the Al alloys for automotive application, on dendrite arm spacing in the cast structure are also presented. Obtained results of the quantitative measured dimensions have shown direct impact of the process parameters on the analysed metals microstructure characteristics. All tests were performed by the light optical microscope with automatic image analyser. Presented experimental results are based on a large number of measurements. A statistical analysis was performed and a high correlation of the results was obtained. For each of the presented investigations and analyzed phenomenon, a statistical mathematical model is suggested with the boundary conditions defined by the investigated intervals of variables.

Thermal analysis has been applied as a quality control tool in aluminium casting plants for many years. Recently, it has been recognized that the cooling curve and its first derivative analysis offer parameters that can successfully be used in simulation software programs to improve simulation accuracy. The latest developments in cooling curve analysis are related to the application of higher order derivatives, showing that the thermal analysis technique can be applied to calculate the total amounts of different phases precipitated in the solidification process, including copper-rich eutectic. This paper gives a short overview of cooling curve applications in aluminium casting plants, and the impact of lead on solidification characteristic temperatures of AlSi6Cu4 alloy. © 2014 CSIC.
