Key advantages

  • Solver
    - Benefit from coupled of ‘fluid mechanics’ and ‘solid mechanics’ simulation
    - Compute complete thermo-mechanical simulation for fine analysis

  • Foundry and Ingot Casting
    - Take into account process parameters
    - Model dynamic air gaps associated with solidification shrinkage
    - Detect defects such as shrinkage, distribution of inclusions
    - Take into account exothermic powder and its possible deformation
    - Manage all interactions between the metal and the wall of the ingot mold, the slag and the mold flux
    - Benefit from a shell creator and simulation of thermal behavior with coupled radiation to obtain accurate results
    - Define all technological factors such as the presence of refractory materials or coating
    - Benefit from the optimized feeder management
    - Benefit from part- and mold-coupled thermo-mechanical resolution to anticipate mold deformation and breakage

  • Continuous Casting
    - Take into account soft reduction to analyze the impact of pinch rollers on the cast product
    - Perform calculation ‘by slice’ to reduce computation time
    - Control the liquid fraction zone
    - Anticipate solidified thickness in primary and secondary cooling areas
    - Observe and analyze the causes of stress, damage and segregation
