(Left) Simulation model for centrifugal casting of a cluster of 8 turbocharger wheels, including the ceramic shell mold. The melt crucible rotates with the mold. (Right) Temperature-coupled mold-filling simulation based on an accelerated rotation.
(Left) Coupled mold filling and solidification simulation for HPDC relies on STAR-Cast’s multiphase approach and a moving mesh technology for the plunger movement in the filling chamber. (Right) Mold filling conditions are well-defined by the shot curve as part of the input parameter set.
(Left) Temperature-coupled mold-filling of a tire rim for a first-guess pressure inlet curve: the fast rise of pressure leads to air-entrapment and air bubble formation. (Right) The modified pressure curve prevents air inclusions during mold filling.
(Left) Temperature evolution on the metal surface during mold filling of a turbine blade featuring an extremely thin trailing edge. (Right) Flow velocity on the metal surface during mold filling for the same blade geometry.
