Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of Semi-Solid Die Casting Process of Magnesium Alloy
  Abstract

Numerical simulation can be used to predict die filling, and hence to optimize the die design. In the study, the flow characteristics of liquid filling comparing with those of semi-solid filling were analyzed. The results indicated that the liquid filling turned out to be turbulent, while the semi-sold filling had laminar flow characteristics which could reduce the foundry defects such as gas cavity and oxidation mixture. The distribution of pressure reduced gradually in the filling direction during semi-solid filling process which would generate back pressure that was favorable for filling process.
