This paper describes the relevant thermo-physical properties that characterize the materials used in feeding systems as well as their measurement. The sensitivity of casting process simulation results to these parameters is explored to illustrate the relative importance of each parameter. A joint effort to measure and validate the properties of a number of feeding system materials is described. The goal of these activities has been to generate the most accurate possible description of the performance of these materials in casting process simulation.
