modeling the shot sleeve
I'm trying to model the shot sleeve for HPDC.
I modeled the shot sleeve by making a cylinder and importing it as complement. then I made another cylinder as solid so I can model the plunger. Then I made the plunger as moving object and specified a z-axis velocity.
I also set up the initial value so that half of the sleeve is filled with a380 with 0 velocity.
Then I ran the simulation but the plunger seems not moving at all.
Can anyone explain in detail how I should model the plunger?
Thank you very much!!
What is HPDC? What is a "short sleeve"? What is "a380"?
Can you post a sketch and describe, in general terms, what it is you're trying to simulate?
Perhaps then someone can make suggestions for you.
Problem solved. I modeled the plunger and sleeve and made the sleeve as a complement, and I think the plunger stuck in the outside of the sleeve that was modeled as a solid(cause I made the sleeve model as a complement).
Anyway, I made the sleeve a bit longer and made the plunger short and put it inside the sleeve void, and it works now.
Thank you anyway.
And HPDC( high pressure die casting)
