Abstract
Simplified castability tests were performed on an Al-2%Cu alloy. Measured values of the fluid length can be represented by Ragone's model, giving an estimate for the metal-mould heat transfer coefficient. The grain structure can be considered as a case of columnar-toequiaxed transition in relatively simple flow conditions.
