FLOW-3D is a highly-accurate CFD simulation software that predicts defects unique to the lost foam casting process, enabling foundries to produce better parts in a shorter design cycle.

Highlights include: improving gating design based on mushy zone considerations, modeling the presence of lighteners and variable foam densities,predicting wicking, modeling the effect of gravitational orientation on metal front velocity, discussion of experiments and simulation for a box casting.
