Hydraulic Experiments of Mold Filling Process in Horizontal Centrifugal Casting
Mold filling process in horizontal centrifugal casting was analyzed in this paper. The effects of rotation speed on flow pattern were studied. Results show that the flow pattern changes greatly with increasing rotation speed and the first thread interval shows significant differences within each group. It is found that inappropriate rotation speed results in liquid drop during filling process, leading to casting defects.
