Study on Simulation of Dispersing Uniformity of Aluminum Alloy Melt in Rheo-Casting Mold
Based on the soft of FLOW3D, the numerical simulation was study the effect of runner-reduction ratio on the dispersing uniformity of added powders inside alloy melt. The parameters studied were gating shape and reduction ratio in cross section area. The results revealed that dispersing uniformity of powders, the flat gating system is better than the comb one, and the best dispersing uniformity was achieved when the reduction ratio was up to 50%.
