In the present study the new method was proposed by using the real-time X-ray observation and metal die in order to evaluate fluidity and viscosity of the molten metal during pouring into the mold. The special mold for the present experiment was introduced since X-ray could not transmit thick mold wall and scatter the image of the molten metal during pouring. The present study also discussed for evaluation of viscosities by using the flow data from radioscopy images, and the viscosities of six commercial aluminum alloys were evaluated and compared.
