Paper Title:
Numerical Modeling of Microstructure Evolution and Dendrite Growth for Al-Si Alloy Casting during Low Pressure Die Casting
  Abstract

A modified Cellular Automaton model was presented to simulate the evolution of dendritic microstructure in low pressure die casting of Al-Si Alloy, which accounted for the heterogeneous nucleation, the solute redistribution both in liquid and solid, the interface curvature and the growth anisotropy during solidification. The free growth of single equiaxed dendrite and the evolution of multi dendrites with various crystallographic orientations were predicted. The variation of the dendrite tip velocity and local solute concentration at the solid/liquid interface were analyzed. The grain morphology of aircraft turbine wheel casting at different specimen points were predicted and compared with experimental results.
