Mould filling simulation in high pressure die casting has been an attractive area of research for many years. Several numerical methodologies have been attempted in the past to study the flow behaviour of the molten metal into the die cavities. However, many of these methods require a stationary mesh or grid which limits their ability in simulating highly dynamic and transient flows encountered in high pressure die casting processes. In recent years, the advent of meshfree methods have expanded the capabilities of numerical techniques. Hence, these methods have emerged as an attractive alternative for modelling mould filling simulation in pressure die casting processes. In the present work, a Lagrangian particle method called corrected smooth particle hydrodynamics (CSPH) is used to simulate fluid flow in the high pressure die casting cavity. This paper mainly focuses on deriving the fundamental governing equations based on a variational formulation and presents a number of mould filling examples to demonstrate the capabilities of the CSPH numerical model.
