Analysis on the Distribution Law of WC Particles during Centrifugal Casting Process
The mathematical physical model of the unmelted WC particle distribution in the centrifugal force field was established in cylindrical coordinate system using continuity theory and hydromechanics. According to the migration rule of WC particle in the Fe-C alloy melt under centrifugal field, the mathematical equation of particle volume fraction distribution including centrifugal casting parameters was formulated. The mathematical equations were calculated by solving the mathematical equation with numerical analysis, and also the distribution regularity of WC particle in composite layer under different temperature and different Centrifugal speed was achieved. The results show that the particle reinforced composite with a gradient distribution along thickness was prepared by centrifugal casting. The gradient distribution of the particle changes with pouring temperature and centrifugal speed. And the theoretical data accord with experiment data compared to the experimental measurement.
