Mold Flow Simulation Modeling

One of the great mysteries of die casting is, “What is happening inside the mold?” First of all, within a few milliseconds, a rush of molten metal is thrust into the mold cavity. It splashes on walls and cores, cools faster in some areas, and slower in others. It pressurizes the remaining air in the…
