Abstract The effect of Eu additions (0, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06, 0.08 and 0.1 wt.%) and T6 heat treatment on the microstructures and mechanical properties of A356 alloy have been investigated in the present work. Microstructures of the as-cast and T6 heat treated samples were examined by optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). It was found that 0.1%Eu modified the eutectic Si from a coarse plate-like form to a fully modified and fine fibrous one with a better uniform… CONTINUE READING
