An experimental investigation of casting processes performed under well controlled laboratory conditions is presented. Casting molds made of transparent material allow for analysis of flow patterns by means of standard optical measurement methods. The tests are carried out for selected highly-viscous Newtonian fluids at room temperature. The physical properties of the test fluids (i.e. viscosity, surface tension and density) are identified. As a result, an extensive set of experimental data is provided.
