Abstract—Casting as a manufacturing process to make complex shapes of molten metal in mass production
may experience many different defects such as porosity and incomplete filling. How to improve
the casting quality becomes important. Gating/riser system design is critical to improving casting
quality. The objective of the research presented in this thesis is to optimize gating systems with
the goal of improving casting quality such as reducing incomplete filling area, decreasing large
porosity and increasing yield
Index Terms—Gating system, sprue, runner, ingates, shrinkage
