Centrifugal casting is widely used as an investment casting method for small parts of complex geometry. Considering that the selection of casting conditions is not a trivial process, casting simulation programs could contribute to the enhancement of the process knowledge. In order to obtain realistic results from simulation, the input parameters should be correctly defined. Determination of the interfacial heat transfer coefficient is the most crucial issue. The contribution of the present work is to provide information for a more realistic selection of these parameters via simulation and to highlight their effect in the centrifugal casting process.
