In the die casting process, the flow of liquid metal has significant influence on the quality of casting products and die life. For the optimal process design of automobile gear housing, various analyses were performed in this study by using computer simulation code, MAGMAsoft. The simulation has been focused on the molten metal behaviors during the mold filling and solidification stages for the sound casting products. Also the internal defects were predicted by application of air pressure and feeding criteria.
