Summary

Throughout the history of CFD, a great number of differencing schemes for the convection term has been proposed in order to reduce the numerical diffusion.

In the current research several of these schemes are examined on their ability to correctly predict macrosegregation in the DC casting of an Al-4.5wt% Cu alloy.
