Numerical Simulation and Optimization on Casting Technique of HT200 Flywheel
The Z-CAST software was employed to simulate the casting process of gray cast-iron flywheel. Shrinkage was predicted through analyzing the temperature field and the flow field. According to the simulation results, the gating system was improved to eliminate shrinkage, and the thin, wide ingate was shown that can reduce the shrinkage and increase casting yield.
