Software for thermally induced deformations and liquid flow in the mushy zone

IFE, in collaboration with Calcom, has implemented the SINTEF/INPG two-phase model for thermally induced deformations and shrinkage induced flow in a 2D axisymmetric solution domain relevant for DC casting. The new modelling tool is referred to as TearSim. Its finite element program code is assembled from building blocks that have been separately implemented and validated by comparing the numerical solution for simplified validation examples with analytical solutions.
