  4. Abstract:
  5. The computer aided optimal feeder design in the sand casting process is considered. The design problem is formulated as an additive evolutionary topology optimisation problem. The initial design of the presented method is a casting part which is placed in a suitable environmental mould box. The method is composed of three stages: determination of the feeder neck connection point, construction of the feeder neck and the feeder growth. During the growth stage, the feeder topology is improved gradually until satisfying some predefined criteria. The technological constraints and user contribution can be easily incorporated in the presented method. The success of the proposed method is supported by illustrative examples. © 2007 W. S.
