Default mould flow in casting process

I would like to use CFD method to simulate the flow of molten metal in the mould of casting process, such as sand casting.

As you know, the mould has inlet(s), called gates, but no outlet. The molten metal will flow to fill up the mold.

I want to analyse the problem in 2D. What CFD technique is suitable for me?

The flow is incompressible and viscous and unsteady.

If you do have source code, can you email me for reference?

Thanks.

There have been extensive research on this area using VOF. Try to search with these key words: CFD+VOF+cast*/mould*

You should be able to get plenty of references.

Its a free surface modeling technique. Stands for volume of fluid.

The group of Douglas Kothe at Los Alamos National Laboratory is working in this area. You can search in their website. They also use the VOF method.
