dc.description.abstractThe 3xx series aluminium alloys are widely used for automotive applications. However, increments in engine power density result in higher alloy mechanical properties requirements for components such as cylinder heads. These alloys should perform better at high temperatures (>200 °C). A good alternative to the traditional Al-Si alloys are the Al- Cu based alloys. However, hot tear tendency is a big obstacle for the widespread use of this family of alloys [1]. The present work focus on determine the relationship between crack occurrence and grain orientation, as a result of the solidification rate. Grain refinement elements such as Ti and Zn are added to the alloy to reduce hot tearing tendency. Two different variants of AlCuMg alloy are evaluated at different solidification rates.
