ENGR3190U – Lecture 09 - Calculations Chapter 11 – 11.1.3 Buoyancy Calculations in Metal Casting During pouring, buoyancy of the molten metal tends to displace the core, which can cause casting to be defective Force tending to lift core = weight of displaced liquid less the weight of core itself F b = W m - W c F b = buoyancy force (N) W m = weight of molten metal displaced (N) W c = weight of core (N) Weights are determined as volume of core times densities of core material (see table 11.1 for densities). Density of sand = 1.6 g/cm 3 , Lead = 11.3, copper = 8.73, grey cast iron = 7.16, steel = 7.82 Example A sand core has a volume = 1875 cm 3 , determine the buoyancy force tending to lift the core during the pouring of molten lead into the sand cast. Answer : Weight of core W c = 1875(1.6) = 3000g = 3kg
