 October 2, 2008, 15:48 S2P Modelling #1 AMP Guest   Posts: n/a I want to model mold filing of a bar mold and solidification in it by a semisolid alloy. I successfully modeled it for a 2D geometry but I don't know why I can't model solidification for a 3D bar mold; in other word I can not define heat transfer to it and I don't why it doesn't matter how much I increase heat transfer to fluid1. I am very confused. please help me anyone how knows. thanks.

If this is a solid to fluid heat transfer in which you are referring you will want to do the following: 1. Activate heat transfer and either fixed temperature solid or full energy equation. If the full energy equation is activated you will need to also define the thermal capacity*density of the solid and the thermal conductivity. Whether fixed temperature or conduction you need to also define an initial temperature for the solid. 2. For the fluid you need to also define the heat capacity, the thermal conductivity and an initial temperature. 3. Heat transfer coefficient for liquid to surrounding solid (mold) 4. Heat transfer coefficient for solidified liquid to surrounding solid I hope this helpss, DTS

I want to model semisolid flow behaviour.as you know semisolid slurries do not have such fluidity like melts and iquids; in other hand they have higher viscosities. my problem: FLOW3D "fluidity simulation"s of my semisolid slurry is not close to my experimental results, at all. tell me your ideas and any usefull suggestion.
