Summary

An optimised development process, which is supported by a completely integrated chain of CAE technologies of 3D CAD, casting simulation and FE analysis, will be demonstrated using the example of a low pressure die cast magnesium wheel. The generation, documentation and interpretation of results gained from FE analysis and casting simulation will be shown, as well as their integration into the development process.
