  • After more than 80 years of practical experience and despite many noted research efforts, theories that rigorously explained the formation of the silicon eutectic phases and the modification of the morphology of those phases by specific chemical additives remained elusive. Almost all papers related to the growth and modification of silicon in casting Al-Si alloys refer to the importance of twinning and a mechanism called a twin-plane reentrant edge. However, a review paper containing detailed… CONTINUE READING
