Modeling of Solidification using CFX

I want to simulate the process involving "Fluid flow+Heat Transfer+Solidification" (Continuous casting).

Can any body please tell me, is it possible to simulate the above process using CFX. I havn't got information on the modeling of solidification using CFX.

Thanks & Regards,
Niranjan Reddy.

same problem here

I need to model heat transfer on air flow using cfx

People have modelled solidification with CFX but you will need to develop a lot of custom models. Not a task for a CFD beginner. Other simulation codes have solidification models which are easy to use.

Aly: Air heat transfer is easily done in CFX. Unless you are modelling solidification then it is likely your model is easy in CFX.

gorrocks please guide me to a good tutorial

All tutorials I found in this part are the same and are not clear !! :(

The tutorials supplied with CFX are quite good. The ones available on the ANSYS community are worth looking at too.

Dear Glenn,

Thanks for your reply...I am looking at other softwares which have solidification module inbuilt :)

I do not know other codes too well, but I would look at fluent, Flow3D, StarCD. There are also specialist casting and moulding software which would probably have it, such as Thercast (from transvalor), mouldflow and many others.
