Optimization of Risering System and Its Experimental Validation Using Casting Simulation
Yadav Pranav M, Kumbhar Rushikesh B, Patil Akshaykumar S, Khatavkar Swarup V and Bhushan S Kamble

In the metal casting process, higher yield and minimum defects level are expected by the foundry industries. In the present global and competitive world, metal casting industries need to perform efficiently with a reduction in rejections. The primary goal is to cast a defect-free component, and the secondary goal is to maximize the yield of casting by designing gating system and to find out optimum shape and sizes of feeders/risers, ingates, gates, etc. For obtaining better results, lots of time, the number of iterations and trial-and-error are required on the shop floor for experimentation. Virtually simulated casting trials make certain that actual castings are defect-free at first time and every time then after within a shorter lead time. Casting simulation provides reliable prediction of defects and good results even for complex-shaped castings. In this paper, the primary goal is to minimize the shrinkage defect by designing the appropriate-sized gating system for T section-shaped casting in considering riser dimensions like height and diameter and also maximize the yield of casting component using virtual simulation technique.

Application of Artificial Neural Network and Genetic Algorithm to Evaluate the Quality of Furan No-Bake Casting
Manojkumar V Sheladiya, Shailee G Acharya and Ghanshyam D Acharya

Defects occurring in any process are the ultimate limitations of the process. Furan No-Bake (FNB) casting process also faces the same problem. To find and minimize the conditions for acquiring least casting defects is very critical. Trial-and-error method was the normal method for minimizing defects. But due to disadvantages like being expensive, time-consuming and even prone results, this method costs too much to the industry. The goal of the company is optimum usage of resources to improve productivity of the organization. In this paper, genetic algorithm and artificial neural network have been used and applied to minimize the FNB casting defects for optimizing the process parameters of FNB casting process. The process parameters are selected on the basis of rigorous research, data collection and survey from different industries. The highest and lowest values of different process parameters were collected from the industry. On the basis of defect analysis, the dominant defect needs immediate attention for its minimization is 'Sand Inclusion'.

An Investigation of Mechanical Properties of Al6061/Graphite MMC Fabricated by Stir Casting Method
Vishwanath V H and Gururaj Hatti

Real utilization of aluminum and its combinations in aviation and car application prompted the modernization of a material as far as the alloying properties are concerned. Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) are one of the vital advancements in the improvement of cutting-edge materials. Among the different lattice materials accessible, aluminum and its composites are generally utilized in the manufacture of MMCs in order to achieve modern generation materials. The accentuation has been given on creating moderate Al-based MMCs with different hard and delicate fortifications (SiC, Al2O3, zircon, graphite and mica) due to the likely potential outcomes of these blends in framing profoundly attractive composites. In the paper, the Al-Gr composite is produced using stir casting method. The composites prepared have different percentages of graphite. Mechanical properties like tensile and microhardness of the composites are investigated. Characterization of composite is done using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).

Biodynamic Response of Human Subjects Exposed to Whole Body Vibration in Forging
Kamaljeet Bhambri, Ishbir Singh, Harwinder Singh and Tejeet Singh

The paper presents the details of investigation of the Whole Body Vibration (WBV) among drop forging subjects. An input parameter of 1440 rpm was considered for conducting drawing operation to record the Vibration Dose Value (VDV) along x-axis, y-axis and z-axis. The values indicate that the average value of 20.11 2.13 ms-1.75 and the 8-hour equivalent vibration exposure [A(8) response] were beyond the ISO: 2631-1 (1997) recommended values. The study found that dominant frequencies for 7-12 Hz and for 8-10 Hz would cause discomfort for different parts of human body because of existing natural frequencies of human body. The results show that these dominant frequencies could cause discomfort, chest and abdomen pain and muscle disorder among subjects. It is concluded that the subjects required better environment in order to overcome WBV exposure.
