Temperature Distribution and Operating Efficiency in Rectangular Cold Crucible Directional Solidifying Ti46Al0.5W0.5Si Alloys
This paper gives a detailed study of temperature distribution on Ti46Al0.5W0.5Si alloy directionally solidified by cold crucible. Based on experiment and numerical calculation, the heating process under different power was investigated, and the operating efficiency of cold crucible was roughly calculated. Further, the temperature field of Ti46Al0.5W0.5Si alloy under high power was numerically calculated, the finite element model predicted the temperature distribution at different moment. The results give a significance guide on cold crucible directional solidification.
