Simulation of Solidification for Metal Matrix Composites


Article Preview

The paper use the finite element method, simulating the solidification process of metal matrix composite. Obtain the changing of temperature field about the solidification process and some temperature curve for special nodes. The results show that, due to the difference of heat transfer coefficient about the matrix and the metal the solidification process for composite materials showed the irregular temperature cloud, namely nonlinear temperature distribution. The simulation actually provides some guidance for synthesis of metal composite materials.
