With FLOW-3D Cast v4.2, the design philosophy of "What You
See Is What You Need" is front and center. Flat panels have
been incorporated that are efficient and easily navigable
with the most important information displayed at the top
level. This new design is available for meshing, boundary
conditions, initial conditions, baffles, metal inputs, and
more. Setting up heat transfer is now a breeze with an
intelligent, context-sensitive, flat panel where all parts
that are in contact with each other are detected and shown
so that the user can quickly set up the heat transfer
coefficients between them. New heat transfer coefficient
databases can be easily expanded using your own data. Most
important, in v4.2, the first of process-oriented workflows
is introduced. The user can start a high pressure die
casting workspace where the distinctive sub-processes –
thermal die cycling, filling, solidification, and cooling –
can be modeled. The user interface recognizes each
sub-process simulation and automatically takes care of both
the "required" and well-established "best practice"
settings. The sub-process simulations within the process
workspace are related to each other and the user can easily
explore different design variations. To further enhance the
already unique and powerful thermal die cycling modeling, a
sophisticated die spray cooling model has been developed
that can model individual sprays, their movement, and their
heat transfer.
