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.
Heat Conduction and Diffusion in Alloy Casting
Derive temperature and liquid concentration profiles during die casting of a roughly plate-shaped alloy part.
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...
