Abstract Scope The present study investigated the effects of Sr addition on the microstructure of semi-solid Al A356 alloy during electromagnetic stirring. Different amounts of Sr (0-300 ppm) were added to the alloy and the effect of Sr on eutectic nucleation and growth temperature of the eutectic silicon phase were determined. Also, effect of Sr addition on the characteristics of primary aluminum phase was determined using image analysis. The results indicate that addition of the Sr up to 90 ppm increased the solidification range (TL-TS) of the alloy and further addition of Sr decreased the value of TL-TS. Image analysis revealed that increasing of Sr up to 90 ppm increased the globularity (roundness) of primary aluminum particles. However, further addition of the Sr reduced the roundness of particles. Also, it was found that addition of Sr in all amount increased the area percentage of primary aluminum particles compared to non-modified alloy. The mechanisms for changes in TL-TS, roundness and area percentage of primary aluminum phase are also discussed.
