Use of Computer Simulation Technology in Engineering Education
The function of the engineering profession is to manipulate materials, energy, and information, in that way creating benefit for humankind. To perform this effectively, engineers must have knowledge of nature that goes beyond plain theory that is traditionally gained in educational laboratories. In recent years, however, the environment of these laboratories has changed. This paper describes the use of simulation technology in engineering education. In particular, the paper considers materials and metallurgical engineering field which involves many high temperature materials processing such as castings and solidification. In this study, an example of use of simulation technique to demonstrate the effects of casting geometry on solidification times of three different geometries in sand casting process been presented.
