Effect of Sr Addition to a Modified AA3003 on Microstructural and Corrosion Properties Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Study of the corrosion behaviour of Twin Roll cast AA3XXX and AA8XXX series material Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Chill (DC) casting. However, this casting technique requires the need for
expensive hot rolling facilities, to ensure a proper reduction in thickness of the
foil products. Therefore, an alternative technique, which does not require the
need for such expensive hot rolling facilities, became of significant interest for
the aluminium industry. ...
Corrosion and Corrosion Protection of Additively Manufactured Aluminium Alloys-A Critical Review Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Metal additive manufacturing (MAM), also known as metal 3D printing, is a rapidly growing industry based on the fabrication of complex metal parts with improved functionalities. During MAM, metal parts are produced in a layer by layer fashion using 3D computer-aided design models. The advantages of using this technology include the reduction of materials waste, high efficiency for small production runs, near net shape manufacturing, ease of ...
Effect of simulated brazing on the microstructure and corrosion behavior of twin roll cast AA3003 Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Aluminum alloy (AA) 3003 is widely used as fin and tube material in heat exchangers. In these heat exchangers, the tube and fin material are brazed together by means of an AA4xxx alloy. In this study, the effect of a simulated brazing step on the microstructure and corrosion behavior of a twin roll casted (TRC) AA3003 was studied. In particular, the effect of simulated brazing on the corrosion properties of the centre line segregation (CLS) ...
Galvanostatic Anodizing of Additive Manufactured Al-Si10-Mg Alloy Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The galvanostatic anodizing behavior of additive manufactured (AM) Al-Si10-Mg alloy was studied in H 2SO 4 electrolyte. The analysis of the voltage vs time response was complemented with a systematic characterization of the anodic oxide layer using a variety of techniques. In addition, a cast alloy of approximately the same chemical composition as that of theAMspecimens was used as a reference in this study. Significant differences were found ...
