4.4 Typical Components in the Runner andVent Systems

In the calculations of the runner the die casting engineer encounter beside the straight pipe which was dealt in the previous section but other kind of components. These components include the bend, Y-connection and tangential gate, ``regular gate'', the extended Y connection and expansion/contraction (including the abrupt expansion/contraction). In this section a general discussion on the good design practice for the different component is presented. A separate chapter is dedicated to the tangential runner due to its complication.
