Application of numerical simulation on cast-steel toothed plate
Keywords:toothed plate, casting process, numerical simulation, solidification process, mould filling
AbstractA three-dimensional Computer Aided Design (CAD)model is established by using Pro/E software. The finite volume method (FVM)numerical model and ViewCast simulation software are used to study both thecasting solidification process and filling process of toothed-plate. Based onthe simulation, the casting shrinkage and solidification process are forecastvisually in the form of images. The mould-filling simulation verify whether theliquid metal pour the mould smoothly and /quietly/evenly. Two optimizationschemes are completed based upon the simulation. The production of the castingshows that these optimization methods are very helpful to reduce the castingdefect and improve the quality of product.
