Modeling and Computation of Casting Process by Particle Method

Since particle-based computational methods, such as smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) method, are suitable to treat free surfaces and moving boundaries, it is expected that the simulation with particle methods can represent more accurate molten metal flow. Hence, we apply the SPH method to some casting processes and validate the numerical results by comparing with experiments. While fluid behaviors of the transportation and the mold filling processes are expressed sufficiently, ladle pouring process of aluminum alloy is not reproduced by the existing scheme. So we developed a new numerical model of surface oxide film, and our numerical results show good agreement with the experimental data.
