Casting is one of the most commonly used manufacturing processes in industries.
It is almost impossible to make a product like automobile, aircraft, etc., without cast component.
This book is meant to serve as a bridge between the study of the processes and their applications in production industries.
Compared with the classical method of writing a book, two similar fundamental processes, namely, theory and practice are blended and explained so that the reader gets holistic approach to casting.
First basic processes are discussed, followed by the special processes and design of systems is discussed.
It is a comprehensive source of technical metal casting information that foundry engineers and managers, process engineers, and anyone, who has interest in or needs to know about foundry operations and products.
Book comes as a useful resource for Mechanical Engineering students.
It also includes industry data, foundry practices, real-time industrial applications, and problems. Salient Features:Up-to-date technical information and Modern trends in the area are covered. Mathematical treatment of casting concepts like Riser design, gating design, solidification and cooling are discussedGATE and IES exam questions for the competitive exams are included.
