Mechanical Properties of Squeeze and Semi-solid Cast A356

ABSTRACT
The purpose of this project is to develop a mechanical properties database for A356 castings produced by the processes of squeeze casting and semi-solid casting. Heat treatment of tensile/machine specimens is complete as are tensile tests performed at room temperature. Models have been applied to correlate structure to tensile properties.
