|Abstract:||A new grain refining master alloy containing MgAl2O4 and Ti was synthesized by in-situ reaction of TiO2 particles in an Al-Mg melt. MgAl2O4 particles formed were distributed in the melt by ultrasonic cavitation processing. The obtained master alloy showed considerable (50%) grain refining ability in a commercial A357-type Al-Si alloy. Ultrasonication contributed further 25% in the grain refinement. In comparison with a commercial Al-5% Ti-1% B master alloy, the efficiency of the new master alloy is less at a lower addition rate. However, both master alloys performed similarly at higher additions. The strength and ductility of the inoculated and ultrasonicated alloy showed at least 10% and 50% increase, respectively, as compared to non-grain refined alloy.|
