2D and 3D implementation of a new hot tearing criterion

EPFL and CALCOM have derived a transient version of EPFL/Calcom�s hot tearing criterion. Input to this criterion has been obtained from temperature and stress/strain field modelling using Calcosoft and ABAQUS. The model has been implemented in the form of a new software module, which has been applied to study hot tearing formation during DC casting of aluminium.
