Filling and solidification process of permanent mold casting Mg or Al alloy tensile testing bar were simulated by the ProCAST software to understand various physical field and to optimize gating system design. The simulated results are well in agreement with experimental ones. The results verify that the optimized gating system can effectively eliminate casting defects in the testing bar so that mechanical properties of the permanent mold casting bar are nearly the true value.
