3D microstructure reconstruction of casting aluminum alloy based on serial block-face scanning electron microscopy
Abstract
© 2018 Elsevier B.V. In this work, the inner microstructure of aluminum-silicon casting alloy was experimentally investigated to reveal the spatial morphology and phase distribution. Its industrial use is as a light-weight structural material. As a powerful three-dimensional (3D) imaging tool at the nano-scale, the serial block-face scanning electron microscopy (SBFSEM) was employed to investigate the specimens. After being 3D reconstructed, the images were visualized to identify preference for several specific intermetallics by quantitative analysis. It was found that these phases have certain relationships in spatial distribution and differences in spatial shapes. The spatial distribution of cracks was studied to understand their propagation and growth.
