Abstract
In this work we present a finite element formulation to simulate the filling of thin moulds. The model has as starting point a 3-D approach using either div-stable elements, such as the Q2/P1 element (tri-quadratic velocities and piecewise linear, discontinuous pressures) or stabilized finite element formulations. The tracking of the free surface is based on the Volume-Of-Fluid (VOF) method. The velocity profile is assumed to be parabolic in the direction normal to the mid-plane, so that one ele...
