Air Entrapment Defects

The air entrapment model in FLOW-3D Cast is used to estimate the amount of entrained air that occurs in metal casting systems during filling. This model is based on simple physical mechanisms and is an excellent predictor or porosity. Using this model, casters can use simulation to prevent air entrapment defects and eliminate the trial and error process.
