Stress Field Numerical Simulation of the Inclusions in Large Rudder Arm Steel Casting
The influences of non-metallic inclusions on the quality and properties of the steel not only depended on the quantity of inclusions, but also on the type、shape、size、deformation behavior and distribution condition. By means of ANSYS finite element analysis software, the stress field distribution in the inclusions and the matrix around the inclusions are analyzed under the condition of different kinds of types、shapes、distributions with changeable load in heavy rudder arm steel castings, then micromechanics behavior of inclusions is investigated from angle of macro mechanics.
