Abstract

This paper presents the prediction results of the temperature change during the solidification process of the cylinder head made of the AC2A aluminum alloy. Prediction results have been obtained by using the FDM solidification analysis based on two different solidification models were investigated. Here, the solidification model means functional relationship between the Temperature and the Fraction Solid. The first model is a simple Linear function and the second model is estimated from DSC measurement. The comparison between the simulated and measured temperatures of the aluminum cylinder head revealed that the selection of solidification models significantly reflects the prediction results. The DSC model gives higher prediction accuracy of the temperature change than the Linear model. The solidification models estimated by using Thermo-Calc and UMSA [3] were also investigated.
