Abstract
In this paper, we present a numerical model to simulate the lost foam casting process. We introduce this particular casting first in order to capture the different physical processes in play during a casting. We briefly comment on the possible physical and numerical models used to envisage the numerical simulation. Next we present a model which aims to solve ‘part of’ the complexities of the casting, together with a simple energy budget that enables us to obtain an equation for the velocity ...
