Contact heat transfer in the foundry – Tunnel effect

  • 1 Bulgarian Academy of Science, Sofia, Bulgaria Institute of Metal Science, Equipment and Technologies with Hydro- and Aerodynamics Centre „Acad. Angel Balevski “


Mathematical methods of quantum mechanics are needed to describe the contact phenomena of the boundary casting/mold. Apart from the macro-level, the contact phenomena are part of the technological processes first order phase transition and second order phase transition. Need for professional software for mathematical simulation at macro- and micro-level in foundry. Education in basic mathematics and mathematical physics is also required for engineers. The branch machine-building infrastructure must develop a mechanism for inclusion in the computing infrastructure of the micro-foundries.
