The use of casting process simulation tools to optimize the production of industrial castings has become state of the art. The quantitative prediction of microstructures, porosity and ultimately mechanical properties of the casting contributes substantial information to obtain high quality castings.
Today it is increasingly important to make the results of casting simulation available to life time predictions or crash simulations, because these simulations are only based on homogenous material properties. To increase the reliability of the casting performance predictions it is necessary to identify sound correlations between casting defects and their influence on the local mechanical properties. Well documented experiments are the basis for such a work. Preliminary correlations between micro porosity and tensile strength or fracture elongation can be found in the literature.
