The Numerical Simulation of Directional Solidification Process Temperature Field for Large-Scale Frustum of a Cone Ingot
By using Fluent software, the mathematical model of temperature field is established on directional solidification process for large-scale frustum of a cone ingot, and the result is analyzed by Origin software, Tecplot. The influences of different width/thickness ratio to directional solidification process of cone ingot are discussed in order to provide basis for design optimization and ingot quality improvement.
