Abstract

The advantages of using two simulation codes in casting simulations have been investigated: a finite element code designed to simulate casting pro-cesses, and a finite volume CFD code designed to simulate thermal and fluiddynamic boundary conditions. The temperature-time curve at an important injection point of a mould system has been measured: in this point, the agreement between numerical and experimental results is very sensitive to the specific boundary conditions that are assumed in the casting simulation. It has been demonstrate that the agreement is good if instead the choice of boundary condition parameters are chosen and tuned to experimental data with the help of a CFD code.
