Design and Fabrication of Rheocasting Mould System

Authors(1) :-Dr. Nirmal Kumar Kund

The vital component of the present design and development related research work is the demonstration of the experimental setup and practice for rheocasting experiments using stirrer for molten Al alloy and appropriate instrumentation to realise the same. The design of experiments includes selecting a suitable Al alloy for SSF, designing and developing an experimental technique for conducting rheocasting experiments. In this work, a physical process is considered which represents a rheocasting process in presence of electromagnetic stirring. This includes a comprehensive description of the CAD model showing details design of the various rheocasting mould components, snapshot of physically developed rheocasting mould used for experiments, snapshot of disassembled rheocasting mould together with both CAD model and snapshot of mould cooling with water jet impingement. It also describes the process variables which affect the transport phenomena during processing. In addition, a variable viscosity model is used to represent the fluid as semisolid slurry. The usual safety measures are also followed in the present experimental designs and fabrication procedures by keeping in view all the pertinent design/development aspects.
