Casting simulation is a virtual process which ensures casting without defects. It involves computer-aided modelling, pattern design, simulation and optimization. Casting simulation is a proven technique for all major cast metals and processes. Results are reliable for complex castings. Fluidity of molten metal plays an important role in producing sound complex castings. The objective of the present analysis study is to identify the factors affecting casting fluidity by changing sprue height, pouring temperature, and flow rate on the fluidity of aluminium alloy (AlSi_13). On the basis of casting variable of sprue height, effect on filling and solidification vary on spiral.
