Summary and Info
Campbell, an international figure in the castings industry and the originator of the Cosworth Casting Process and the newly emerging Alotech Casting Process, brings his now classic first edition up to date with new information on surface turbulence and bifilms. Emphasizing the role of the liquid metal in controlling the properties of cast materials, 11 chapters cover the entire casting process-from the melt to solidification and contraction-as well as structure, defects, and properties of the finished casting, processing, and environmental interactions. He intends to follow this volume with two more: one outlining his ten rules for the manufacture of good castings, and the other providing a comparative study of casting processes. This second edition should prove useful for practicing foundry engineers and casting designers as well as graduate students in the metallurgy and foundry fields.
