Production of sand casting flywheel

According to the actual production situation of sand casting, on the basis of summarizing and analyzing the theory of sand casting simulation, the numerical simulation software procast2008 is used to firstly simulate the filling and solidification process of the flywheel casting process currently produced by the enterprise. According to the simulation results, the optimization design and improvement of the casting system of the flywheel are carried out. The stress field simulation of sand mold casting process was studied by means of large-scale finite element analysis software ANSYS10.0.
