Paper Title:
Application of Numerical Simulation on Cast-Steel Axle’s V-Method Foundry
  Abstract

The V-method foundry is an advanced casting technology compared with traditional sand casting. The Pro/E software was used to generate three-dimensional model of cast parts. The solidification process of the automotive axle casting with V-method foundry was simulated by the numerical simulation software, ViewCast. The location and scale of the shrinkage defects caused by the original process were predicted. According to the simulation results, the position of the flange round cooled too fast, which blocked the feeding passage of the round near sprue. The reason was that solidifying sequence was unperfected. The casting process was optimized by means of adding runner and chill. Progressive solidification can be obtained and the shrinkage defects can be eliminated or transferred by the improved technology. The reasonable casting process was obtained and the process has been proofed by the productive practice.
