The quality of cast products in green sand moulds is largely influenced by the mould properties, such as green compression strength, permeability, hardness and others, which depend on the input (process) parameters (that is, grain fineness number, percentage of clay, percentage of water and number of strokes). This paper presents multi-objective optimization of green sand mould system using evolutionary algorithms, such as genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO). In this…
