Mold Filling and Solidification - Sand Casting Example

I have been a steady user of the ESI-ProCast Casting Simulation software since its inception around 1990. At that time the ProCast tetrahedral Finite Element meshing function could closely replicate the geometry of complex castings with varying section thicknesses, as it is the case in the Pump Industry. Over the years I found out that this premier package consistently provides reliable results on account of its scientific/metallurgical acumen.

Shell Filling and Solidification - Investment Casting Example

ProCast solves the complex Radiation heat flow calculation, which is essential in reproducing the heat effect of one shell section on to another during the cooling of an investment tree. Without this feature, a strictly Conduction solution will often give erroneous information.
