Flow Science Releases New Version of Casting Simulation Software

Flow Science announced today that it has released a new version of FLOW-3D Cast, its simulation software developed especially for foundrymen, tool makers, and casting designers. Version 3.5 of FLOW-3D Cast features new capabilities to model iron solidification and shrinkage, cavitation potential, prediction of core gas generation, and sand core blowing and core and mold drying. A new permeable mold model is available to model air escape during filling. In addition, users can make use of temperature-dependent material properties to more-accurately predict solidification-related defects. An updated graphical user interface, increased speed and an integrated CAD translation tool are also part of the new release.

According to David Souders, Flow Science’s Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Support, “ FLOW-3D Cast was originally developed by foundry-oriented partners of ours. After realizing the usefulness of the industry-focused interface, with its more-intuitive design for model setup, we acquired the rights to the product and made a number of valuable changes. Among other things, we’ve streamlined the product development cycle to more-quickly sync the release of FLOW-3D Cast with the latest version of FLOW-3D’s solver. The addition of the fluid structure interaction and thermal stress evolution models later this year will be the final step in this process.”

FLOW-3D Cast is offered in three ascending levels of utility: Basic, Extended and Advanced. The Basic version is positioned as an affordable entry-level product for the foundry market, while Extended offers additional capabilities necessary for HPDC shops. The Advanced version is aimed at larger operations interested in making use of the most sophisticated physical models such as the sand core and mold suite. The Advanced version allows access to the FLOW-3D interface to enable the user to run non-casting simulations, such as auto manufacturers modeling sloshing, tank filling, and more. Because all versions use the same core FLOW-3D solver, the accuracy of filling and solidification results is equivalent across all versions.

All versions of FLOW-3D Cast empower the user to take advantage of parallel processing on multiple cores. The new release is now available for download by FLOW-3D Cast users who are under maintenance service contracts.
