Modeling of Stress, Distortion, and Hot Tearing

Abstract : Computational modeling of mechanical behavior during solidification is becoming more important. Thermal and microstructural simulations alone are insufficient to predict the quality of the final product that is desired by the casting industry. Accurate calculation of displacements, strains, and stresses during the casting process is needed to predict residual stress and distortion and defects such as the formation of cracks such as hot tears. It also helps predict porosity and segregation. As computing power and software tools for computational mechanics advance, it is becoming increasingly possible to perform useful mechanical analysis of castings and these important related behaviors.
