Fig. 7. Comparison of mold filling times for a plate pattern with three ingates: (a) measured values by thermometric technique [18]; (b) predicted filling times based on basic CHTC model with gravity effect; and (c) predicted filing times based on the VHTC model with heat transfer coefficient changing with gas pressure; (d) mold filling time at the right-and wall of the mold for the plate pattern with three ingates.
