  1. Freezing by Radiation and Convection

    16 May 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell

    Use radiation and a heat transfer coefficient to estimate the initial rate of solidification of the solid shell at the top of a casting while the temperature in the shell can be considered uniform, then set up the equation for mixed conduction/convection-radiation limited cooling.

  2. Heat Conduction and Diffusion in Alloy Casting

    16 May 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell

    Derive temperature and liquid concentration profiles during die casting of a roughly plate-shaped alloy part.

  3. Cast-a-Box: Casting Conditions and Macroporosity

    07 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell

    An illustration of three-dimensional finite difference simulation of heat conduction with phase change and complex boundary conditions, this requires students to adjust boundary conditions to make the top surface of a regular hexahedral "casting" to freeze last, eliminating...

  4. Casting of a Cylindrical Part in a Thermally Resistive Mold

    30 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew John M. Krane

    Use of integral analysis for development of approximate solution for solidification in cylindrical thermally resistive mold.
