Use of Rheocasting Mould in SSM Processing

Authors(1) :-Dr. Nirmal Kumar Kund

The principal constituent of the present research work is a description of the experimental system and methods for rheocasting experiments by means of the stirrer for molten A356 aluminium alloy and proper dashboard to accomplish the same. It includes descriptions of the key physical process parameters involved, rheocasting procedures, methods and measurements along with the safety precautions followed during design/fabrication or performing the entire experiments. The experiments also include consideration of the right aluminium alloy for the semisolid material (SSM) processing (i.e. forming or casting), sprouting an experimental technique and handling of temperature data observed from the stated rheocasting experiments.
