Heat transfer across the metal‐mould interface has been modelled by a generalized equation referred to as the Lewis‐Ransing Correlation. It has been shown that the spatial as well as temporal variation of the interfacial heat transfer coefficient can be optimally designed to achieve a desired solidification pattern. The technique has been validated on two practical examples achieving a complex solidification pattern.
