From the applications standpoint, strength, ductility, and other mechanical attributes are only equal in importance to reliability. Variability in soundness and performance remains the greatest concern in engineered structural applications for which castings compete. The processes and controls for narrowing material variations in premium engineered castings form part of the basis for aggressive cooperative materials development programs in automotive and aerospace applications that emphasize process capabilities rather than reliance on nondestructive evaluation.
Premium engineered casting objectives require the use of chemical compositions competent to display superior properties. Alloys 32 / Aluminum Alloy Castings: Properties, Processes, and Applications considered to be premium-strength compositions are listed in speciﬁcation AMS-A-21180, which is extensively used in the United States for premium casting procurement. 0. Premium engineered aluminum castings represent the culmination of decades of research and development involving molten metal treatment, methods for the removal of included matter, measurement or assessment of dissolved hydrogen, gating development, microstructural modiﬁcation and reﬁnement, casting processes, mold materials, and the development of high-strength, ductile alloys.
