FLOW-3D Cast - Highly-Accurate Metalcasting Simulations
A high pressure die casting
system is easily defined with
three mesh blocks and FAVOR™
The use of FLOW-3D Cast in your casting design process translates directly to savings that improve your company's bottom line.
FLOW-3D Cast provides engineers and designers with powerful tools to enhance their experience and expertise. The savings come from cost reductions and cost avoidance. Now, quality and productivity issues can be solved in less time and with lower costs by evaluating alternative concepts with simulation before die steel is cut or molds are modified. And, the effectiveness of new tool development can be improved by solving the problems before production begins.
FLOW-3D Cast contains a wide variety of physical models specially designed for casting. These special models include algorithms for lost foam casting, non-Newtonian fluids, and die cycling. If you want to improve the accuracy of your simulations and the quality of your cast products, then FLOW-3D Cast is the simulation tool for you.

FLOW-3D incorporates a special technique, known as the FAVOR™ (Fractional Area Volume Obstacle Representation) method, which is used to define general geometric regions within the rectangular grid. The philosophy behind FAVOR™ is that numerical algorithms are based on information consisting of only one pressure, one velocity, one temperature, etc., for each control volume, so it would be inconsistent to use much more information to define the geometry. Thus, the FAVOR™ technique retains the simplicity of rectangular elements while representing complex geometric shapes at a level consistent with the use of averaged flow quantities within each volume element.
