Summary

The subject is aimed at possibilities of using the numeric modelling methods and their applications in simulation programs destined for supporting of casting and solidification of castings. It makes acquainted the students with a possibility of the design solution, elimination of defects and prediction of properties and structure of a casting. Possibilities of using the simulation programs for special and non-traditional processes of casting manufacture are presented here too.
