Turbulence, Simulation, k - ε Method, Free Surface
In this work the SOLVA-VOF method was used to solve the Navier-Stokes equations and track the free surface. For modeling the turbulence phenomena in the mold filling k - ε model was used. In this method solving domain was discreted to three regions includes: laminar sub layer, boundary layer and internal region. The simulation results were shown to be in a good agreemenr with the experimental results.
