Abstract
Influence of size of the ambient pressure enclosed to melt and die temperature on structural changes and mechanical properties are investigated. It is shown, that depending on modes of squeeze casting in an alloy is formed or the dendrite structure or the mixed structure. The opportunity of increase of a level of strength of an alloy up to the values observable in hot-deformed a condition is shown.
