Simulating Aluminum HPDC: Comparing two runner systems and resulting defects

In this webinar, Flow Science engineers discuss successful high pressure die casting projects using FLOW-3D Cast, a highly-accurate casting simulation software for filling, solidification, and stress analysis. The demonstration covers an ongoing analysis done by Flow Science and C & H Die Casting. FLOW-3D Cast was used to analyze the flow and shrinkage defects in a thin-ribbed cover made of aluminum 380 alloy cast within a stainless steel mold. This webinar presents the results from the two runner types and the benefits of modeling the shot sleeve in HPDC simulations.
