    This text seeks to provide a comprehensive technical foundation and practical examples for casting process modelling technology. It highlights fundamental theory for solidification and useful applications for industrial production. It also details shape and ingot castings, semi-solid metalworking, and spray forming.

    Fundamentals of casting process modelling; stress analysis; defect formation and prediction; microstructure evolution; thermophysical properties; quick analysis; electronic data interchange; sand casting; lost foam casting; investment casting; permanent mould casting; die casting; semi-solid metalworking; continuous casting; direct chill casting; vacuum arc remelting and electroslag remelting; plasma arc melting and electron beam melting; spray forming.
