Researchers from Indian Institute of Science Detail New Studies and Findings in the Area of Metals ResearchMetals ResearchNewsRx.com
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- New research on Metals Research is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Bangalore, India, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "In the present work, the evolution of microstructure during solidification of A356 alloy under stirring is performed experimentally in a high temperature concentric viscometer. The stirring during solidification results a semisolid slurry in the annular space between the cylinders."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Indian Institute of Science, "This slurry is removed periodically during processing using a vacuum removal quartz tube and quenched in water for micrograph analysis. From the micrograph analysis, the shape, stacking arrangement and corresponding microstructural evolution of the suspended primary particles in the slurry are studied. The work also predicts the fraction of solid present in the extracted slurry."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Finally, the effect of microstructure and the solid-fraction on the slurry viscosity is presented."
