The results of an experimental study and 3D numerical simulations of resin bonded sand/air flow in a square corebox with an H-shape insertion and passage between upper and lower pockets of the pattern are presented. A computer controlled electronic system was designed and built to measure pressures and flow rates inside the corebox during mold filling, gassing and purging cycles of Phenolic Urethane Amine (PUA) process. Contour maps of the pressure distributions inside the corebox were created based on barometric measurements. A good agreement between experimental results and numerical simulations was found.
