Computational fluid dynamic modeling of a continuous rheo-casting technology was conducted, consistent with the manufacturing of 3 mm-thin plates made of aluminum alloy A356. The A numerical simulation on of the stabilizing time of the material crystallization was carried out using the ANSYS FLUENT code. Solidification and melting models were simulated with heat transfer and solid-liquid phase transformation involving the latent heat of crystallization were simulated. The calculated temperature distribution and the evolution of cooling rate through the material were examined and used to clarify their influence on microstructure, and further investigated with hardness testing. The thickness of the mushy zone was determined for the steady conduction solution of the continuous rheo-casting process.
Keywords: semisolid processing, solidification, solid - liquid phase transition, computer simulation
