Rheological behavior of semi-solid TiB2/7075 composites and simulation of their rheocasting processes

In the present study, in-situ TiB2 particle-reinforced 7075 aluminum alloy was produced by adding a mixture of K2TiF6 and KBF4 to the molten base alloy. The effects of the addition of 4.5wt.% and 9wt.%TiB2 on the apparent viscosity and microstructure were investigated. The results showed that adding...
