"The driving factor behind the development of FLOW-3D Cast has always been to closely reflect the workflow and needs of our customers so that they can improve product development, speed up production and deliver high-quality products to market before their competitors,"
Key models and improvements to the solver and GUI include:
A thermal stress model that predicts stresses and deformations in solid and solidified parts in response to pressure forces
Multiple improvements for modeling cooling channels in dies
Improved capabilities for modeling the generation of gasses from sand cores
Several new numerical options that enable faster simulation times
A new Simulation Manager function in the graphical user interface, allowing users to manage their simulations better, both before and as they run, and to visualize the progress of simulations
Improvements to the user interface that make setting up simulations much easier and more intuitive
A new state-of-the-
