In mechanical penetration, the metal penetrates into the green sand mold because of the metallostatic pressure of the molten metal.
This difference can be explained in part by the fact that the vertical unidirectional solidification, a displacement of the sidewall, so that due to gravity and the metallostatic pressure, the solidified layer touches the surface of the copper mold cooled (chill), increasing the contact and thereby reducing the resistance to heat flow increases the heat transfer coefficient.
If gas pressure at the mold/metal interface is higher than metallostatic pressure, gas can push into the liquid metal to create blow defects.
Topics covered include turbulence, solidification, shrinkage, metallostatic pressure effects, gating and riser system design and calculations, mold-wall movement and computer modeling, pouring times, and placement and feeding distance of risers.
Topics covered in this two-day lecture course include turbulence, solidification, shrinkage, metallostatic pressure effects, gating and riser system design and calculations, mold-wall movement and computer modeling, pouring times, and placement and feeding distance of risers.
Metallostatic pressure from risers during solidification will help keep oxide inclusions compact, not allowing for an unfolding and stretching of these minute cracks.
Because the amount of liquid metal in the downsprue varies during the pour, the metallostatic pressure on the rest of the metal flowing downstream also varies.
This four-day, hands-on laboratory course will include turbulence, solidification, shrinkage, metallostatic pressure effects, gating and riser system design and calculations, mold-wall movement and computer modeling, pouring times, and placement and feeding distance of risers.
Course topics include metal flow, turbulence, solidification, heat transfer, shrinkage, metallostatic pressure effects, gating system and riser design, mold-wall movement and computer modeling, riser size and gating system calculations, pouring times, and placement and feeding distance of risers.
