|Title:||Heat Transfer Characteristics Of Inward, Outward And Upward Solidification Of An Al-1.5wt%fe Alloy In Cylindrical Chill Molds|
|Abstract:||In this work, three water-cooled experimental solidification devices were developed, and experiments were carried out with an Al-1.5wt%Fe alloy. The three experimental setups consist of vertical cylindrical steel molds with each of them having different zones cooled by water. For the inward solidification, a cooled tube is used having its upper and bottom part thermally insulated. For the outward solidification, a cooled tube, forming an inner part, is concentrically placed inside a cylindrical mold, which is thermally insulated from the environment, by using insulating materials. For the upward solidification, the bottom part of the mold is water-cooled and consists of a thin (3 mm) disc of carbon steel, whilst the cylindrical surface is covered with insulating material to avoid lateral heat losses. A numerical solidification model based on the finite difference method is applied for the simulation of the three aforementioned cases of solidification from the chilled surface considering transient heat flow conditions. Experimental thermal readings in the castings have been used for the determination of the transient overall metal/coolant heat transfer coefficient, h, through a numerical-experimental fit of casting thermal profiles based on inverse heat transfer calculations. It was found a significant variation of h as a function of time during solidification in the three cylindrical set-ups experimentally examined, including a remarkable increase in h during the outward solidification. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.|
