CFD Modeling for Lost Foam White Side

ABSTRACT
The goal of this research project is to develop a computer-based model to simulate air-driven blowing of pre-expanded beads into a mold, and the subsequent steaming (expansion) of beads to form a lost foam pattern. It will improve the ability to design EPS patterns for defect-free castings.
