Abstract: In casting processes, pressure die casting processes widely used for nonferrous alloys, which have wide applications in current industrial scenario. Nonferrous alloys should be casted by another processes but only PDC process provides qualitative casting with highest production rates. These can achieved only after proper temperature distribution is achieved in die as well as in casting parts. It was very difficult to predict temperature distribution for new geometry of die/casting and new advanced material of die. In current scenario trial/error and experience of workers play vital role to getting proper temperature profile of die. These methods are time consuming and also wasting of energy. i.e. heat energy required to melt materials, material cost, heating-cooling works etc. These activities overall increased individual product cost. Thermal profile of new die/casting, new geometry and new die materials can be achieved by ANSYS fluid flow fluent. In order to understand the effect of water flow rates on die thermal profile, a 3D solid modelling has been developed and employed for this study. Analysis work can suggest optimum water mass flow rate for particular geometry and for particular die materials. Various die materials and geometry gives different thermal profile according to provided water mass flow rates. To optimize water mass flow rate for specific die geometry and die materials these results can be employed.
