    The load on flange castings in sand molds was gradually increased beginning from the end of the solidification process until the final cooling stage. The maximum tensile load on the flange castings in furan sand molds was larger than that of the flange castings in green sand molds. With the furan sand mold, permanent deformation in the flange castings occurred beginning from the end of the solidification process until reaching a temperature of approximately 250°C. The mechanical interaction between the casting and the sand mold should be considered for more accurate stress calculations, particularly in furan sand molds.
