The influence of casting defects on static and fatigue strength is investigated for a high pressure die cast aluminium alloy. Defects exist in gas and shrinkage pores as well as cold fills, dross and alumina skins. For the three batches of specimens, differing for the sprue-runner design, the influence was straightforward, while no significant variation in the fatigue strength was observed when looking at batches of "acceptable" and "non-acceptable" components, as judged within the foundry quality control. In this case, defects count for their size and location, while quality control often takes no account for component working conditions. The Haigh diagram shows a good matching between the specimen reference material and the component fatigue data.
