Numerical Simulation of Rheo-Diecasting Mould Filling Process of Semisolid Magnesium Alloys
Base on the coupled three-dimensional model of flow temperature and apparent viscosity on semisolid materials, the mould filling processes of liquid and semisolid magnesium alloys have been analyzed. The simulation results showed that the semisolid mould filling with the characteristic of pseudo-plasticity and Bingham type is steady and the air entrapment is much smaller than that of liquid die casting. Therefore, the semisolid die casting can prevent from those defects produced by the traditional die casting, which offer a new technology for lower interior defects and better quality.
