This book emphasizes the underlying metallurgical principles of casting technology so that the students can develop a sound set of analytical skills helpful in the development of improved casting processes and products. Besides comprehensive coverage of the casting processes and elaborate discussion of properties of cast irons, cast steels, and cast non-ferrous alloys, the book also familiarizes the students with the most recent developments in binder systems, casting practices, solidification processing, metal filtration, metallurgy of cast alloys, alloy design, and energy and environment management. In the new edition, the author has tried to update the subject of Casting Technology and Cast Alloys within usual constraints of producing a students' textbook of convenient volume.
The book is primarily designed for degree and diploma students pursuing courses in Metallurgical, Mechanical, and Production Engineering disciplines as well as for candidates studying for Associate Membership Examination (AMIIM, AMIE, and GRAD IIF). It would also benefit M.Tech/M.E. students specializing in foundry technology and allied disciplines.
