Abstract – This project presents the simulation based Multi core cavity system of bearing housing with modified Gating design. Initially CAD model of bearing housing has been prepared in Solid Works software. Metal flow analysis carried out using Any Casting Simulation Software. It is used to visualize a complete solidification process which is not possible during real casting.  The pouring velocity and pouring time have been applied as simulation inputs. The simulation results were obtained to improve defect free casting. Simulation provides good understanding about temperature distribution, filling velocity and fraction solidification time. The modified gating design with multi core cavity system increased the yield as well as productivity. 

Keywords— Sand casting, Multi-cavity system, Solid works, Any-casting.
