Article
Aerosol size distributions from ferrous foundry cupola furnaces vary depending on semicontinuous process dynamics, time along the tap-to-tap cycle, dilution ratio, and the physical and chemical nature of the charge and fuel. All of these factors result in a highly time-dependent emission of particulate matter (PM) 2.5 pm or less in aerodynamic diam...

The use of optimization algorithms to adjust the numerical models with experimental values has been applied in other fields, but the efforts done in metal casting sector are much more limited. The advances in this area may contribute to get metal casting adjusted models in less time improving the confidence in their predictions and contributing to...
Article
The use of the thermomechanical simulation is very infrequent in the metal casting industry although the associated results are really useful for the manufacturing process. The main reasons are the complexity, the long calculation times and the difficulties to interpret the results. The parts manufactured by metal casting processes cool from its f...

http://hdl.handle.net/11556/401 The use of numerical simulation in the metal casting industry has experienced a significant increase during last years and today is quite extended. In spite of that, the true is that obtaining reliable simulations of this type of processes is not a trivial task. The use of the appropriate values for the model paramet...

The simulation of the High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC) process is a complex type of simulation. The industrial procedure is based on consecutive manufacturing cycles that must be taken into account in the simulation. Moreover the part geometries use to be complex and the alloy is injected at really high velocities. All of that usually implies long...
Conference Paper
In addition to the typical difficulties associated with the numerical simulation of metal casting processes, the special characteristics of the high pressure die casting (HPDC) increase the difficulty of obtaining reliable results. The process followed to define and adjust one HPDC simulation model against experimental measurements by means of inve...

The achievement of reliable simulations, in the case of complex processes as is the investment casting, is not a trivial task. Their accuracy is significantly related with the knowledge of the material properties and boundary conditions involved, but the estimation of these values usually is highly complex. One helpful option to try to avoid these...

An ephemeral Ascomycete due to its small size and its dependence on a high degree of environmental moisture is described. Although in favorable conditions numerous specimens can be found, its growth on the hidden side of the fallen leafs in contact with the ground moisture, makes it to go unnoticed, what could explain why it is under recorded. With...

This paper presents the adjustment process of a simulation model to improve the correlation between simulation results and parts industrially manufactured. It includes the data registration at foundry plant, the preliminary set-up of the model and the later adjustment process to reach a correlation level according to the industrial necessities. The...

In this article, the author is going to present the results of a large research project related to the particulate matter within the iron foundries melting shops. It was decided to analyze the raw emissions, in other words, emissions produced behind the fabric filters, in order to assure that obtained data could complete the available low quality d...

It is the first time this taxon is described and illustrated in Spain. It was found and collected in the autonomous regions of La Rioja and Castilla-La Mancha, close to the north and the centre of Spain respectively. The described specimen is dangerously toxic with sufficient registered cases in France. It is shown in this article how the authors c...
Article
The emission limit value of the Incineration Directive is being assumed more and more by other industrial sectors. Following this and despite the BREF document developed by the EIPPCB does not establish a limit as an obligation to fulfil, European foundries have decided to tackle this problem which is becoming a common problem for many of them. In...
