Shrinkage porosity with squeeze pin

squeeze pin

This work was presented by FORMSTAMPI at the Flow3d European User Meeting held in Madrid in June 2013. The aim was to fine-tune the parameters and computational models that influence the prediction of shrinkage porosity formation. It was particularly interesting to simulate the behavior of the Squeeze-pin. In addition, the study shows how the presence of air trapped in the metal after filling influences the formation of shrinkage cavities during solidification.
