3.7 Summary

The dimensional analysis demonstrates that the fluid mechanics process, such as filling of the cavity with liquid metal and evacuation/extraction of the air from the mold, can be dealt when the heat transfer is negligible. This proved an excellent opportunity for simple models to predict many parameters in the die casting process which are discussed in this book. It is recommended for interested readers to read Eckert's book ``Analysis of Heat and Mass transfer'' to have better and more general understanding of this topic. put ref to the latest Eckert's book.
