At present, both energy efficient and light weight products are of great importance in the aerospace & defense markets and indeed the energy sector - to name a few. The design of such light weight parts often leads to extremely thin and complex geometries, which are only able to provide the necessary strength and durability when the micro-structure at critical regions complies with tight specifications.
For metal parts, casting is often the most efficient production process -which, in addition to relative freedom in the geometric design- gives the opportunity to control the micro-structure by the solidification conditions. Computer simulation is an important tool to achieve the desired casting quality in a cost efficient way. Simulation is vital in helping engineers to meet the required exact specifications.
