The water-cooled casting mold was developed in order to provide a high cooling rate of aluminum castings doped with scandium. Modeling of filling and solidification process allowed determining the optimal technological parameters of cooling design features based on shape and heat-transfer surface of the casting. The developed method of modeling the casting mold with water cooling evaluates the effectiveness of this design.
