A Study on Solidification Behavior of a High Pressure Die Cast Aluminum Swing Arm Using Commercial Modeling Software To Predict Porosity Level

A Study on Solidification Behavior of a High Pressure Die Cast Aluminum Swing Arm Using Commercial Modeling Software To Predict Porosity Level

Abstract In the automobile industry, aluminum casting is a commonly utilized production process for structural components. However, flaws in aluminum castings can lead to fatigue failures. This research study provides a thorough analysis of the design, development, construction, and testing of a swing arm made of aluminum die-cast (HPDC). The investigation primarily focuses on analyzing

Effect of Mold Temperature and Pouring Temperature on the Crack Behavior of Composite Water-Soluble Salt Cores

Jingkai Zhang1, Yang Li1, Lai Song1, Weihua Liu1 & Xue Zou1 Abstract This study analyzes the effects of different pouring temperatures and mold temperatures on the crack behavior of NaCl–Na2SO4 composite water-soluble salt cores (WSSC). Firstly, calculate the solid fraction during the solidification process of the salt core using the Newton baseline method. Then predict the sensitivity of the salt core

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

High-Pressure Die Casting of Al–Ce–La–Ni–Fe Alloys

Benjamin E. MacDonald1, Stuart Wiesner2, Ryan Holdsworth1, Carl Söderhjelm1 & Diran ApelianORCID:orcid.org/0000-0001-9743-606X1 Abstract The effects on phase equilibria of La and Fe additions to the Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system are explored under high-pressure die casting conditions. The addition of La to Al–Ce–Ni-based alloy system only reacts with Ce synergistically to promote the formation of the Al11(Ce,La)3 intermetallic phase as predicted by CALculation

Fig. 3. (a) Schematic of four-point reversed bending set-up used in this study. Dimensions in mm. (b) Picture of the bending fatigue test set-up. The specimen was fixed by four fixtures, where two outer fixtures were connected to upper moveable shaft for applying the loading. The two internal fixtures were connected to the fixed base in the bottom. Between the fixture and the shaft/base were thin steel spring to ensure that the specimens can bend flexibly. To show the details more clearly, the distance between each fixture shown in the picture is larger than the actual distances used in this study.
