THERMAL REGIMES AND CRYSTALLIZATION KINETICS DURING CASTING LIGHT VITRIFY GLASS MELTS INTO A METAL MOLD
Using an original mathematical model the calculate analysis of the relationship of thermal modes of castings production with crystallization kinetics and microstructure parameters of the alloy Cu47Ni8Ti34Zr11 is made. It is shown, that at cold mold casting in castings of different thickness are fixed three types of microstructure: amorphous with inclusions of so-called "quenching nucleus", amorphous- crystalline and polycrystalline with microscale size of the crystals. For castings with a completely crystallized nanocrystalline structure proposed method of isothermal quenching melts, which is realized by casting the melt into the preheated mold. Determined values of the initial mold temperature interval provides for the formation of castings having a grain size of 100 nm for justifiable from an economic point of view intervals.
