Component Casting 6 CreditsThis course opens the door to the fascinating world of casting! Here you will get familiar with different component casting processes and several casting related phenomena as heat transfer, solidification, microstructure formation, defects and residual stresses. You will also get a basic overview of how these phenomena relates to the design of the component and can be investigated using casting process simulation software.
The course is given with a combination of online lectures, self-studies, home assignments, online discussion in the forum and simulation exercises from home using VDI (possibly also at the campus in Jönköping).
Course ContentsThe course aims to give the student basic knowledge and deepening of component production of the casting of metallic materials, including design, material properties and manufacturing processes. In each step, a scientific approach to technology both in terms of systematic approaches and mathematical language to be able to analyze and evaluate process solutions and the problems that are associated.
The course includes the following topics:
- Manufacturing of components by casting.
- Applications of heat transfer, including conduction, convection, radiation to calculate the solidification and feeding.
- Applications of fluid flow, Bernoulli's equation, the continuity equation, lamellar and turbulent flow
- Cast materials, solidification and microstructure and properties. Phase diagrams. The relation casting process, microstructure and properties of cast alloys. Sheingkage and gas porosity.
- Design for casting and cast materials
- Introduction to computer simulation of the casting process. The integration of CAD / CAM
