Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science, UOIT ENGR3190U: Manufacturing and Production Processes Assignment #2 – October 2, 2010 Due Thursday October 7 in class. Late assignments are 25% off first day, 50% off second day and 100% off third day. Please slip under my office door. Problem 1 – Chapter 10 A disk 50 cm in diameter and 5 cm thick is to be cast of pure aluminum in an open mold casting operation. The melting temperature of aluminum = 660°C and the pouring temperature will be 750°C. Assume that the amount of aluminum heated will be 8% more than what is needed to fill the mold cavity. Compute the amount of heat that must be added to the metal to heat it to the pouring temperature, starting from a room temperature of 25°C. The heat of fusion of aluminum = 389.3 J/g. Other properties can be obtained from Tables 4.1 and 4.2 in the text. Assume the specific heat has the same value for solid and molten aluminum. (6 marks) Problem 2 – Chapter 10 The downsprue leading into the runner of a certain mold has a length = 185 mm. The cross-

Determine (a) the velocity of the molten metal flowing through the base of the downsprue, (b) the volume rate of flow, and (c) the time required to fill the mold cavity. (6 marks) Problem 3 – Chapter 10 In casting experiments performed using a certain alloy and type of sand mold, it took 165 sec for a cube-shaped casting to solidify. The cube was 40 mm on a side. (a) Determine the value of the mold constant the mold constant in Chvorinov's Rule. (b) If the same alloy and mold type were used, find the total solidification time for a cylindrical casting in which the diameter = 30 mm and length = 55 mm. (10 marks) Problem 4 – Chapter 11 An aluminum-copper alloy casting is made in a sand mold using a sand core that weighs 22 kg. Determine the buoyancy force in Newtons tending to lift the core during pouring. (5 marks)...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
