The dramatic progress made over the last 10 to 15 years in the field of "comuter simulation of solidification and casting" is greatly due to the supports by academic as well as industrial research. The driving force behind this undertaking was the promise of predictive capabilities that will allow process and material developments. Here, the recent works on modeling were summarized, for the macrosegregation in the macroscale simulation, and the Cellular Automaton, the solidification path combined with the microsegregation, the phase-field model in the meso-scale and micro-scale simulation.
