Development of new calculation processes for computerized casting simulation and model verification under manufacturing conditions

The achievements from this research include:
application of computer simulation for the solidification process of complex castings using computer aid design (CAD) data;
application of the model on mass production casting, single production and prototyping casting;
determination of casting parameters by simulation;
design of complete riser and gating system with simulation;
determination of mechanical properties in production;
optimization of riser and gating system for high quality standards;
development of a model for detecting defects caused by the mould filling procedure as well as by the solidification process;
first advanced usage of simulation data in administrative area;
application of simulation results in preventive quality control.
