This article illustrates the simulation procedure of casting process. It describes important elements and points of the simulations. These include the setting of clear simulation objectives, selection of proper simulation code, hints in modeling of shape and phenomena, initial and boundary conditions, physical properties, enmeshing, and evaluation of simulation results. The article provides some insights into the application of models to real world problem for foundry process engineers.
