Theoretical Analysis of Liquid Aluminum Flow in Aluminum Casting Processes

Aluminum casting is a manufacturing process that has been around for some time. This method has been used in making many aluminum products used as parts of aircraft, automobiles, turbines, and structures like bridges. Every cast product is expected to be of the desired and required strength so it will not fail on application. It is good to predetermine the strength of aluminum cast accurately at the design stage before casting. Therefore, we developed a model that can predict the aluminum cast's strength and other mechanical properties by studying the flow profile of liquid aluminum flowing through the mold.
