摘要：The size sudden change and structure evolvement of the macro-grains of Al-Si alloys with Si contents increasing were investigated in this article. It has been found that the curve for macro-grain sizes versus Si contents takes the form of peak-valley. The macro-grain size of commercial pure Al is the coarsest and it will decrease greatly with Si increasing and get a valley near 3% Si, then it increases gradually with Si increasing and reaches the peak value near the eutectic point, the macro-grain sizes of eutectic Al-Si alloy are coarse almost as that of pure Al. The macro-grain size of hypereutectic Al-Si alloys again decreases markedly with Si increasing. It is also found that the phase structures of the macro-grains of Al-Si alloys evolve gradually with Si increasing. The process of evolvement is described as: single α -Al phase &rarr α -Al phase surrounded by eutectic structures &rarr single eutectic structure &rarr primary Si crystals orderly surrounded by secondary α-Al phase and eutectic structures.
