Determination of feederless casting limits by thermal analysis in cast iron.
In this study the determinations of melt quality was carried out by thermal analysis of ductile iron. The aim of the study was to determine the limits of feederless casting after the determination of inoculation quality in cast iron.

Parameter and casting optimization with simulation-driven casting design.
Castings are becoming lighter, stronger and increasingly defect-free, but there remains room for improvement. The higher demands for lower weights and higher quality challenges us to change how to design and produce castings.

Simulating castings with real foam filters
It has been possible to simulate foam filters for a number of years, but the simulations have then taken a month or two which makes it most unpractical. With today’s technology, it is possible to create 3D models of filters.

Simulating high pressure die casting with full process
NovaFlow&Solid is using something called Multi-mesh which means that we can use different size of mesh for the whole calculation domain during certain times in the simulation making it possible to simulate the gravity pouring of chamber followed by the piston movement just in minutes. In this way you can concentrate the simulation time on the most important part of the simulation the: filling of the casting cavity.

The curse of the split melt.
To optimize a casting to 100% may not be realistic since the casting process is very complex. I can say with certainty that more than 90% of all castings in the world are not fully optimized for casting. This article is about how to solve this issue.
