Summary and Info
This newly revised Handbook on modern casting technologies is a comprehensive reference for those who specify, manufacture, design, or evaluate cast metal components. This broad-based collection of applied casting knowledge provides a valuable resource for student, educators, practicing engineers, and technical support staff. The broad scope of this reference covers both the products and processes of casting. From guidelines on the purchase of castings, to the engineering demands of energy efficiency, productivity, and product performance, Volume 15 provides very extensive coverage on the principles, practices, and applications of metalcasting. Molten metal processing, solidification behavior, modeling, molding, foundry practice, and casting properties are covered in detail. The basic steps and equipment associated are described for casting processes, along with their advantages, limitations, and applications.
