|The core of the book consists of the following : – casting design (Chapter 6) – mould design (gating and risering, Chapters 7 and 8) – metallurgical principles (Chapter 5, 9 and 10). Methods of improving productivity and for reducing casting defects are emphasized at several places. Further metallurgical quality control is stressed. Brief accounts of pollution control are given at appropriate place and in Chapter 13. Empirical relations abound in foundry engineering. The present book includes only those relations that are widely employed to provide a working knowledge. As far as possible, conceptual understanding is emphasized. As in some German text books, this book has appendices at the end of chapters. The appendices provide additional information or data or extended discussion which can be omitted at first reading. To help the students with numerical calculations, worked examples are dispersed in the text. Questions and problems are included at the end of the text. S.l. units are employed.
