By Doru Michael Stefanescu

Casting of metals developed first as witchcraft, progressively grew to become an artwork, then know-how, and have become only in the near past a technology. a number of the tactics utilized in a steel casting are nonetheless empirical in nature, yet many others are deeply rooted in arithmetic. In no matter what shape, casting of metals is an task primary within the very lifestyles of our global, as we all know it this present day.


Foundry stories point out that solidification modeling is not just a cheap funding but in addition a huge technical asset. It is helping foundries circulate into markets with extra complicated and technically challenging paintings. besides the fact that, to the easiest of the author's wisdom, there were no makes an attempt to synthesize the knowledge that may be used for engineering calculations pertinent to computational modeling of casting solidification.


This e-book is predicated at the author's thirty years of expertise with instructing, examine and the economic perform of solidification technological know-how as utilized to casting approaches. it's an try and describe solidification idea in the course of the advanced mathematical gear that incorporates partial differential equations and numerical research, that are required for a primary therapy of the matter. the maths, even if, is particular to the point necessary to reach a operating wisdom of the sector. this is often in response to the most objective of the ebook, that is to coach the reader within the fast paced zone of computational modeling of solidification of casting. For the sake of completeness, a different attempt has been made to introduce the reader to the newest advancements in solidification concept, whether the reader has no engineering purposes at the present.


The textual content is designed to be self-contained. The author's educating event demonstrates that the various scholars attracted to solidification technological know-how should not absolutely expert in partial differential equations (PDE) and/or numerical research. for that reason, parts of PDE and numerical research, required to acquire a operating wisdom of computational solidification modeling, were brought within the textual content whereas trying to keep away from the interruption of the fluency of the topic. quite a few modeling and calculation examples utilizing the Excel spreadsheet as an engineering instrument are supplied. The publication is addressed to graduate scholars and seniors in solidification technology, in addition to to commercial researchers who paintings within the box of solidification normally and casting modeling specifically.
