Abstract

Ultrasonic streaming and cavitation are the most predominant factors to consider for the efficient ultrasonic treatment of melts. In order to achieve a good distribution of reinforcement particles for making a Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs), the cavitation zone and velocity of fluid must be maximum enough to disperse the particles in a homogeneous way. In normal practice, stirring takes place in a closed vessel or crucible, where efficiency cannot be seen, and simulation methods are required to inform experimental research. In this work, ultrasonic streaming in water, glycerol, and the aluminum melt was numerically simulated and compared by introducing SiC particles. And the simulated results of same in water and glycerol were validated by experimental results to observe sonochemiluminescence which can lead to validate the simulated result of aluminum melt indirectly. In this work, COMSOL Multiphysics is used for the challenging coupling of pressure acoustic and particle trajectories. The simulation results show that the homogenous distribution of SiC particles is influenced by ultrasonic power, frequency, ultrasonic processing time, and immersion depth of the ultrasonic probe. These studies lay the groundwork by understanding the amalgamation of simulated results in different liquids for the application of ultrasonic treatment in metal melts. Furthermore, the presented model is numerically stable and appropriate for testing parameter variations, geometry modifications, and material adjustments.
