A Heat Transfer Model for the Production of Semi-Solid Billets with the SEED Process

Abstract:

Article Preview

A heat transfer model was built to predict the temperature evolution of semi-solid aluminum billets produced with the SEED process. An inverse technique was used to characterize the heat transfer coefficient at the interface between the crucible and the semi-solid billet. The effect of several process parameters on the heat transfer coefficient was investigated with a design of experiments and the coefficient was inserted in a computer model. Numerical simulations were carried out and validated with experimental results.
