|HPDC Webinar Series: Part III - Cooling and Solidification
High pressure die casting (HPDC) simulations are typically quite complex. To accurately model the entire physical process one needs to account for heat transfer, melting and solidification, air entrainment, surface defect tracking and cavitation. In this three-part webinar series, we will simulate the entire HPDC process in FLOW-3D Cast. We will also demonstrate the power of the new process-oriented workspace that implements the necessary physical models and numerical defaults while setting up the stages of thermal die cycling, filling, solidification and cooling.|
In part III of this series, we will explore cooling and solidification in a high pressure die casting. The formation of internal porosity can affect the final quality of the casting part. Once filling is complete, a solidification simulation is performed to track the opening of voids that results in defects. In addition to predicting microporosity and macroporosity, FLOW-3D Cast is also used to investigate a detailed temperature history of the casting part to determine if additional cooling is required, and whether the initial process parameters need to be modified. In the final stage of HPDC, we also look at the thermally induced stresses when the casting part is being cooled after ejection from the die.

|What’s New in FLOW-3D v11.2
Please join us for this webinar where we will present the latest developments in FLOW-3D v11.2.|
FLOW-3D v11.2 includes major new features, significant advances in solver performance as well as performance improvements in user interface graphics in areas like transparency and large raster data sets. Featured developments include the expanded Particle Model, the new Dynamic Droplet Model and interactive geometry creation.
The performance of the FSI/TSE model has been greatly improved, and the accuracy of the GMRES pressure solver is now assured through better default convergence control.
Processing geometry is performed with higher level of accuracy where the improved FAVOR™ algorithm results in smoother interfaces. Gaps between components, which are common in complex CAD assemblies, can now be controlled by automatically closing them.
FlowSight has been highly optimized to improve performance in areas like load times and iso-surface creation.
FLOW-3D/MP is now completely in sync with the developments in FLOW-3D and will be released shortly after the release of FLOW-3D. This high performance computing solution is now deployed in the cloud through a cloud workstation that is connected to a farm of thousands of compute nodes for tackling massive simulations or DOEs where the user needs to run many simulations simultaneously.
