Hi everyone,
I need to simulate the solidification of steel.
At the moment I'm using the solver solidificationFoam, but there are some missing things:
-Communication between solid and liquid domain, ingot and ingot mold
-Thermal Shrinkage
-Viscosity variation as a function of temperature

What solver do you recommend?

Thanks in advance!
