Summary

The knowledge of solidification curves of alloys, i.e. the local solid fraction vs. temperature during solidification, is one essential for the control of casting processes and also a very important input parameter for solidification simulation software. In this study an in-situ method combining a heat-flux differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) measurement with a mathematical heat-transfer model (HTM) is applied to provide solidification curves of the AZ91 and AZ62 magnesium alloys. These alloys were selected as the prototype Mg alloy and a variation in order to check the validity of the proposed in-situ method.
