THERCAST® is the world leading, and proven 3D simulation solution for ingot casting processes. More than 20 years of experience and development with market leaders such as Arcelor Mittal, Ascometal, Aubert & Duval have made THERCAST® the most reliable and most recognized solution on the market.
What makes THERCAST® truly different is its unique solver. THERCAST® uses a full 3D thermo-mechanical solver. THERCAST® resolves physics equations from liquid to solid at the same increment, allowing for interactions of all physics phenomena in real time. In short, fully coupled simulation provides best and most accurate results.
THERCAST® is also an excellent educational tool to understand the influence of each component (exothermic powder, pouring rate, molds and hot top designs) on the solidification, and final ingot properties (porosities, macro-segregation, residual stresses).
