Abstract—Environmental savings can be made by increasing the use of aluminum alloys in the automotive
industry as the vehicles can be made lighter. Increasing the knowledge about the heat treatment
process is one task in the direction towards this goal. The aim of this work is to investigate and
model the heat treatment process for Al-Si casting alloys. Three alloys containing Mg and/or Cu
were cast using the gradient solidification technique to achieve three different coarsenesses of
the microstructure and a low amount of defects.
