The paper with the title “Failure and Fracture Analysis of Al-alloy wheel rim of a vehicle” authored by Mr. Anagnostis Toulfatzis, Ms. Marianna Katsivarda, Mr. Andreas Rikos, Dr. Athanasios Vazdirvanidis and Dr. George Pantazopoulos from ELKEME S.A. was presented in the Seventh International Conference on Fracture Fatigue and Wear FFW2018, Ghent, Belgium, July 09-10, 2018.

 

In the frame of the present study, macro- and micro-fractographic analysis along with microstructural examination and mechanical testing were employed as the principal analytical methods for the investigation. Metallographic examination using SEM/EDS analysis revealed a typical as-cast structure with shrinkage cavities and intermetallic phases, pertaining to the Al-Fe-Si and Mg-Si constituents.
