>> Iron Turbulence Analysis via Foundry Water Model II: Advanced Testing
The relationships between iron casting stream quality and pouring system (stopper rod, nozzle) condition are empirically known, but can now be more precisely characterized. Through the use of a specialized foundry water model coupled with a novel optical sensing system capable of analyzing stream turbulence, realistic iron pouring scenarios can be simulated. In Part II, additional insight was gained through a series of model upgrades allowing for critical testing of more variables with regard to stream turbulence. Previous experiments were also revisited to produce more statistically reliable results.
