Casting simulation ADSTEFAN
Many products are made by casting (e.g. Diecasting), and its quality and precisions are asked higher and higher. In general, castings are produced relying on casting engineers' skill, experience and intuition.
Therefore, casting engineers spend a lot of time and cost in not only designing but also modifying.
Casting Simulation System, ADSTEFAN visualize physical phenomena occurs in a Mold when molten metal is filling or solidifying.
You can predict what types of phenomenon or defects occurs inside of the Mold without trial casting.
ADSTEFAN brings you to reduce trial casting, designing time and cost, and also to improve quality of a product.
ADSTEFAN is the fastest casting simulation system operates on Windows.
This is an example of ADSTEFAN calculation time of Basic analysis: Fluid flow analysis and Solidification analysis, with a windows machine (Main memory: 4GB, Clock:2.6GHz).
1. Comparison of Fluid flow analysis
- Approximately 2 hrs in case total numbers of mesh elements are less than 10,000,000.
- Approximately 4hrs for 20,000,000 mesh elements.
- Approximately 14hrs for 50,000,000 mesh elements or over.
2. Comparison of Solidification analysis
- ADSTEFAN provides material database as standard.Initial value for each material is prepared in the database so that required material database is available by clicking the name of the material. Also, it is easy to customize the database as you want, such as adding new material data or changing some value of the existing material.
- Wall resistance or temperature dependency data can be registered on the database.
