During the last decade, continuous casting has gained increasing importance as a highly developed technology for the production of superior quality pre-forms for specific subsequent processing by both the copper and the light metals industry. Current progress also includes spray forming as an increasingly important processing option. Therefore, experts from the manufacturing industry, researchers and scientists from university and industry as well as suppliers of equipment and ancillary products need to stay up-to-date on most recent technical, economical and ecological developments. These Proceedings of the Continuous Casting 2005 conference will review the complete range of the processing chain covering both melt treatment and casting technology as well as specific measures for micro-structural control. A focal point of the programme will deal with modelling and simulation that has become an integral part of modern manufacturing. But also safety and health aspects will be approached.

Materials Processing during Casting


Materials Processing during Casting By Hasse Fredriksson, Ulla Akerlind(auth.)
2006 | 434 Pages | ISBN: 0470015136 | PDF | 6 MB
Casting is one of the most important processes in materials technology. In this unique book, each step in the casting and solidification process is described and models are set up, which in many cases can be approximated by simplified analytical expressions. All casting methods are featured, including component casting, ingot casting and continuous casting. Applications of the results are given in numerous worked examples within the text. Conclusions on how to avoid cracks, solidification pores, slag inclusions and other defects of the castings, can be drawn from the theoretical models. These conclusions are based on research results, which together give an idea of the development in the manufacture of castings. Most chapters conclude with a number of exercises, answers to which are given at the end of the book. The accompanying ‘Guide to Exercises’, provides the complete solutions to each of the exercises.Content: Chapter 1 Component Casting (pages 1-13): Chapter 2 Cast House Processes (pages 15-28): Chapter 3 Casting Hydrodynamics (pages 29-57): Chapter 4 Heat Transport during Component Casting (pages 59-92): Chapter 5 Heat Transport in Cast House Processes (pages 93-138): Chapter 6 Structure and Structure Formation in Cast Materials (pages 139-182): Chapter 7 Microsegregation in Alloys – Peritectic Reactions and Transformations (pages 183-225): Chapter 8 Heat Treatment and Plastic Forming (pages 227-253): Chapter 9 Precipitation of Pores and Slag Inclusions during Casting Processes (pages 255-309): Chapter 10 Solidification and Cooling Shrinkage of Metals and Alloys (pages 311-368): Chapter 11 Macrosegregation in Alloys (pages 369-410):
