Casting Solidification Model
 
i am designing a casting system for a connecting rod in flow3d
i can run the fluid flow simulation and the velocity vectors but i cant run the solidification of the casting to analyze the shrinkage models.
do you have a manual or tutorial to help me, please?
i try my best but i could not run the solidification.
thank you in advance :)

there is no one to respond me? :confused:

Create a restart from the filling simulation--to learn how to do this check help>manual
Select solidification button on Physics tab
Select shrinkage model>select interdendritic if it is hpdc
Turn off moving objects if you are modeling shot sleeve if not change boundary to symmetry
Ensure you have critical and coherent fractions defined along with the solid and liquid densities in Fluids tab
Set finish condition to finish to solidified fraction General tab finish conditions
Change finish time to larger value because the finish condition will finish if solidified or time is complete whichever is first.

do you know how to set the parameters for sand casting?
