Comparative Studies of the Fluidity of Some Selected Non- Ferrous Metals and Alloys

Musa Nicholas Akhaze

Abstract


Selection of the types of non ferrous metal and alloy for casting into the desired products has been based on the characteristic of the metal and alloy. If a sound casting is to be achieved,  so that the desired product will not have defect or fail in service, fluidity of the non ferrous metal or alloy should also be considered in selection. So this research work carried out comparative studies of fluidity of Aluminium, Brass and Bronze. The results showed  that bronze has the  highest fluidity of 56.5cm at its maximum pouring temperature of 1288oC  and aluminium has the lowest fluidity of 34.6cm at its minimum pouring  temperature of 650oC

Keywords: Fluidity, non-ferrous metal , alloy, casting,   aluminium,  brass,  bronze .
