(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.
