Casting Simulation System ADSTEFAN
New feature "Inner-Mold Gas Flow Analysis" has been introduced, which calculates gas flow in the sand mold by considering a gas generation at the heated sand mold and thermal expansion of the gas. The series of results will help to evaluate gas penetration in the casting.
"Rotation movement" feature is introduced additionally to the "Moving Object" function, which was applicable only for a parallel movement in the Ver.2018. Complexed behavior of the moving object can be realized using a combination of the rotation and parallel movement, expected to apply a ladle tilt or mechanical stirring.
New physical models are introduced in the "Oxide" and "Cold Flake" markers. The "Oxide" model reproduces a sticking behavior at the melt surface, and the "Cold Flake" model reproduces detaching behavior from the sleeve by scraping.
