Simulation Based Designing of Defect Free Parts in Die Casting
simulation of die casting process is an important tool to predict the filling behavior of die cast metal in dies and
prediction of defects in the die cast parts. The simulation of the die casting filling process is performed to predict defects
incurred in producing a die cast part. The results of simulation are examined to analyze the filling behavior of the molten
metal and to identify any defects in the part. the model has been updated so as to reduce defects in the die cast parts. The
capabilities of the developed system are demonstrated by applying it on sample die cast part model. In the present work,
functional requirements of a part were not accounted for and the designer can accept or reject the modified design keeping in
mind the functional requirements.
