Numerical Simulation on Mass Transfer in Micro Electroforming with Ultrasonic
The numerical simulation of flow field and pressure field in the micro-region with different power ultrasonic were performed by FLUENT6.3 simulation software. Ultrasonic power on mass transfer effect was analyzed through the simulation results combined with surface morphology of micro casting. The results illustrated that micro electroforming assisted with appropriate power ultrasonic can significantly enhance mass transfer process and improve surface morphology of micro casting. And it was confirmed that Fluent was reliable in simulating the effect of ultrasonic on mass transfer and helpful to optimize and design deposition experiments with ultrasonic.
