Advanced computer simulation technology is a powerful tool used to understand the critical aspects of heat transfer and fluid transport phenomena and their relationships to metallurgical structures and formation of defects in metal casting processes. Computational models are enabling the design and production of more economical and higher quality castings. In order to produce accurate and reliable simulation of the complex solidification processes, accurate, self-consistent, and realistic thermophysical properties input data are necessary. Unfortunately, reliable data for many alloys of industrial interest is very limited.This article is an attempt to guide the foundry engineer through the data available for simulation modelling.
