Abstract

Carrying out technological tests and research is indispensably connected with high costs and elongation of implementation time of new casting technologies and their modifications in industry. Hence, the application of specialised computer software, enabling the simulation and analysis of metallurgical and casting processes in modern foundry industry is of special interest. The present work presents an experimental application of MAGMASoft software in casting process of EV31A magnesium alloy structural element of helicopter engine. The results of computer simulation have been compared with industrial cast of the simulated element, fabricated in the same conditions. It has been revealed that the computer simulation provides a complex information on the analysed process, leading to reduction of costs and time, connected with technological tests in implementation of new casting technologies.
