A simplified three-phase, multiscale macrosegregation model which describes the growth kinetics of equiaxed grains and the coupling between microstructure morphology and the macroscopic transport has been proposed previously. In this paper, the model is validated by comparing the numerical model predictions to the experimental data from DC casting of an AA7050 alloy billet. The morphology of the equiaxed grains has an important influence on the macrosegregation, and we show that the model predictions are accurate when the grain morphology is described correctly.
