Metal casting is one of the oldest methods of manufacturing. It has played a vital role in the development and advancement of human civilizations. Metal casting process is very simple to understand but still it involves many variables which make it very complex to design and run. For good quality design of casting, knowledge of three fundamental fields is required which are Fluid mechanics, Heat transfer and Metallurgy. Defects like shrinkage cavity, porosity, and sink can be avoided by proper designing of feeding system. For designing purpose many software are available in the market which uses different algorithm for solving solidification and filling problems in casting. In present work, AUTOCAST XI (based on Gradient Vector Method) casting simulation software has used for design and simulation of casting. The proposed approach overcomes the difficulty of controlling process parameters in foundries (mainly due to manual processes and unskilled labors), by making the design more robust (less sensitive) with respect to process parameters.
