Mold Filling and Solidification Studies of a Gray Iron Engine Block 980306

Each step in the evolution of the casting design of Chrysler's 2.0-liter/four-cylinder gray iron engine block is modeled using Technalysis' finite element metal casting analysis program PASSAGE®/PowerCAST. The effect of different gating designs are investigated to determine the variations in temperature distribution and solidification time. Three different casting designs are evaluated by comparing the results of the numerical simulations.
