Solid® - OpenSolid® : Casting simulation software

Solid®-OpenSolid® are 2 numerical simulation software dedicated to the casting process. Solid® is used for continuous casting as well for ingot casting, with a 2D modeling approach. OpenSolid® proposes an indeep analyzis thanks to a powerful 3D Model.

Solid®-OpenSolid® perform an analysis of thermo-metalurgic behaviour of the material during the process.

Solid®-OpenSolid® : indeep and coupled analysis of key parameters :

  • heat

  • flow mechanics

  • chemical composition

during the solidification process for continuous casting/ingot casting.

Solid®-OpenSolid® allow to take into account the thermo-metalurgic phenomena occuring during the cooling and solidification of the ingot.

Results analysis

Solid®-OpenSolid® provide the main results which are key data for the process optimization :

  • temperature

  • solidification time

  • material composition

  • grains radius

  • supercooling

  • segregation

  • DAS

  • shrinkage

  • equiaxed computation

  • columnar equiaxed computation

  • ...
