Casting is one of the most widely used metal forming methods and serves as a foundation in the aviation, aerospace, and automotive industries, among others. However, the complexity of the processing conditions makes it difficult to observe and optimize the casting process. Numerical simulation technology provides a digital representation of the high-temperature metal liquid evolution process and enables the prediction of casting quality. The continuous development of numerical simulation technology for the mold filling and solidification processes in casting has played a crucial role in achieving high-quality castings, making it a key technology in the foundry industry.
However, the increasing demand for an improved casting structure and performance in engineering requires further development of foundry and solidification simulation technology, focusing on aspects such as the high precision and efficiency of numerical simulation methods; through-process simulations; macro-, micro-, or multi-scale simulations; and multi-field coupling models. In order to promote the further development of foundry and solidification simulation technology, we are pleased to invite you to submit your contributions that are related to this Special Issue, “Numerical Simulation of Foundry and Solidification Processes”.
This Special Issue welcomes various research articles on numerical simulations of foundry and solidification processes, including those that focus on casting process (such as smelting, mold-filling, solidification, heat treatment, core making, etc.) simulation technology, multi-scale simulation technology, defect prediction technology, high-precision and highly efficient algorithms, and more. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
