Prediction and Alleviation of Core Gas Defects

Flow Science engineers along with project leaders from Caterpillar and Alchemcast discuss successful foundry projects using the core gas model in FLOW-3D, a highly-accurate CFD simulation tool. The demonstration covers simulations of T and saddle cores from Graham White Manufacturing and an engine block water jacket core from General Motors. FLOW-3D was used to analyze core gas flows to eliminate defects due to binder gas blowing into metal.
