Abstract Scope In the present study, the effect of section size and solidification time on the grain size, hardness, contact angle (CA), and corrosion resistance of A206-T7 aluminum alloy was investigated. A step casting, with varying section thickness (0.25, 0.5, 0.75, and 2.0 inches) was made in a sand mold. Casting simulation showed a quantitative increase in solidification time with section thickness. The experimental results indicate that by increasing casting thickness from 0.25 inches to 2 inches, the average grain size increases from 80 Ám to 124 Ám. Wetting study shows that water CA values for different section sizes range between 71 to 87 degree. It was found that the corrosion current nearly decreases by 73% when section thickness increases from 0.75 to 2 inches suggesting that the dominant corrosion mechanism in this alloy is intergranular corrosion.
