Abstract

The mathematical model and computer simulation for prediction of mechanical properties of cast steel was developed. Because of wide range of applicability and ease of use of finite volume method (FVM), this numerical method was suitable to create integrated computer program for simulation of transient temperature field in process of solidification and cooling of casting.Distribution of hardness of cast steel has been predicted by conversion of calculated cooling times from 800 to 500 °C to the hardness. The algorithm for prediction of hardness in casting is based on real chemical composition. The established procedure was applied in computer simulation of cast steel properties.
