Özet

© 2018 Trans Tech Publications, SwitzerlandIn this study, Al-7Si-4Zn-3Cu alloy was processed by multi-directional forging (MDF) at 3, 6 and 9 passes corresponding to one, two and three cycle, respectively. The structural and mechanical properties of the alloys were investigated in the as-cast, homogenized and MDFed states. The MDF resulted in a severely deformed and refined microstructure with eliminated casting defects like micro-porosity with nearly homogeneous distributed fine silicon particles. The ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and yield strength (YS) of the alloy increased up to two cycle, above which they decreased, while the percent elongation (E%) increased continuously with the cycle number. The compressive strength (CS) and micro and macro hardness of the alloy decreased with increasing MDF cycles. The results were evaluated according to microstructural changes depending on MDF cycles.
