Abstract

The effects of electromagnetic vibration on macrosegregation in AZ80 magnesium alloy billets have been investigated experimentally. Comparing to conventional direct-chill casting, the enrichment for the alloying elements close to the billet surface is significantly reduced by the electromagnetic vibration. Increasing the stationary magnetic field, i.e., increasing the intensity of the electromagnetic vibration results in uniform distributions of the metallic elements in the billet. The distribution of impurity iron has the same tendency with alloying element manganese with and without the electromagnetic vibration. The uniformity in the concentration profile of iron is higher than that for the alloying elements in the billet and increases with increasing the stationary magnetic field of the system used for generation of electromagnetic vibration.
