Publication Date: November 2020
Keywords: Aluminum; lightweight materials; molten metal and solidification; shaping and forming; phase transformations; advanced processing
Scope: This topic covers the formation of structure, defects and properties during casting and solidification of aluminum and magnesium alloys, with technologies including shape, continuous, direct-chill casting and rapid solidification. The topic also covers new technological approaches to improve the quality of cast metal through optimization or changing of casting hardware or procedures. Both experimental and modelling papers are welcome for submission, though the modelling papers need to contain experimental validation.
