Seminar - Processing and Mechanical Properties of Advanced Al-Si Based Alloys by Prof. Mok-Soon KIM

Date:   01 November 2012 (Thursay)

Time:   2:00 – 3:00 pm

Venue:  EF305, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Abstract:

Al-Si based alloys are potential light-weight structural materials for automotive engine components because of low density, high wear resistance and low thermal expansion. In this presentation, processing of powder metallurgical Al-Si based alloys, focusing on advanced automotive engine piston, was addressed. High temperature deformation behavior and mechanical properties of the alloys were evaluated and discussed in connection with microstructural analysis.
