Unformatted text preview: solidification times for each geometry. (b) Based on the results of part (a), which geometric element would make the best riser? (c) If C m = 3.5 min/cm 2 in Chvorinov's Rule, compute the total solidification time for each casting. A riser in the shape of a sphere is to be designed for a sand casting mold. The casting is a rectangular plate, with length = 200 mm, width = 100 mm, and thickness = 18 mm. If the total solidification time of the casting itself is known to be 3.5 min, determine the diameter of the riser so that it will take 25% longer for the riser to solidify....
