The Computer Solidification Simulation of Oceangoing Freighter Rudder Horn
The numerical solidification simulation for oceangoing freighter rudder horn steel casting has been made and the location and reasons forming casting defects have been predicted by HUAZHU CAE software. Simulating result shows that the casting perfects can be realized by means of the technological optimization and rationally assembling gating system, risers and iron chill. After magnetic particle detection and ultrasonic inspection, the properties and microstructure of the oceangoing freighter rudder horn steel casting are in accord with the standard of USA, Germany and Japan.
