## Abstract

A modeling strategy is presented to solve the governing equations of fluid flow, temperature (with solidification), and stress in an integrated manner. These equations are discretized using finite volume methods on unstructured grids, which provide the capability to represent complex domains. Both the cell-centered and vertex-based forms of the finite volume discretization procedure are explained, and the overall integrated solution procedure using these techniques with suitable solvers is detailed. Two industrial processes, based on the casting of metals, are used to demonstrate the capabilities of the resultant modeling framework. This manufacturing process requires a high degree of coupling between the governing physical equations to accurately predict potential defects. Comparisons between model predictions and experimental observations are given.
