Mechanical Performance of Dies

ABSTRACT
Researchers at the Ohio State University have addressed the mechanical performance of the die and machine system in die casting and are investigating the fundamental principles that underlie the behavior of the die in response to the machine clamping forces and the other loads. In this project, OSU is developing modeling capabilities that provide greater details on material properties of the casting which will impact the improvement in dimensional control and operational efficiency of die castings
