Casting process issues related to hot tearing and cracking of the casting, thermal fatigue of dies and prediction of the final shape of a part are a challenge for foundries. Powerful, multi-physics simulation tools are now available to address them. This e-tip will consider the advantages of a fully coupled thermal, fluid flow and stress analysis of casting, in particular in view of the above mentioned challenges.
