Aluminium Semi-Solid (SSM) casting has received increased attention by industry due to its intrinsic characteristics such as laminar flow during filling and low in-cavity shrinkage, resulting in castings with low gas entrapment and shrinkage porosities related defects. This process is widely used in the production of thin-walled castings, however thick-walled components are not yet very explored. The aim of my research is to contribute with relevant knowledge regarding processing, microstructure, mechanical and fatigue properties of aluminium SSM castings to be used by designers for production of light weight and cost effective critical structural components.
