Abstract [en]

The centrifugal casting process is a common method for manufacturing the tubes, etc. Due to its high temperature and invisible mold, it is really difficult to know the mechanism of molten steel inside the mold. It is important to know the mechanism of the molten steel inside mold, since it will help the manufacturer to know more accuracy of the flow of the molten steel so that it can work for improving the productivity and quality of the products.

Casting funnel design is the designed by Åkers for their funnel which will result in different flow behavior. In thesis work, casting funnel design will be investigated so that it can make sure that the casting funnel design can affect the flow behavior of molten steel or not.

Another method of changing the diameter of nozzle was also carried out and investigated with both simulation and experiment to changing flow behavior of molten steel. It will give Åkers alternative method for changing the flow behavior to liquid steel.

The mechanism of solidification in centrifugal casting is also really important since it can give manufacturer the general view of solidification process. So solidification of centrifugal casting is also investigated in the thesis work.
