Numerical Analysis on Thermal Field in Rheocasting-Rolling of Semi-Solid Magnesium
The process on rheocasting-rolling of semi-solid AZ91D magnesium alloy was investigated by the finite element method from the aspect of fluid mechanics .The mathematical model of the casting-rolling zone was built based on the analysis on the heat transfer mode and boundary conditions of the casting-rolling zone. The numerical simulations were carried out by different casting-rolling parameters to observe the full solidification point and find the best pouring temperature. The numerical simulation results showed that when the semi-solid slurry temperature was 584°C, magnesium strips with good structure and performance could be obtained by rheocasting-rolling. This simulation provided a valid evidence to determine the optimal process parameters.
