Volume 1A provides practical information on the science and engineering of cast iron from its earliest uses to the latest advances in thin-wall and heavy-section ductile iron castings. The volume opens with a brief history, followed by a thorough review of the metallurgy of cast irons and the thermodynamic forces that drive microstructure evolution and volumetric changes associated with solidification and solid-state transformation. It then addresses current manufacturing practices, describing the metallurgy involved in liquid metal preparation, casting, heat treating, welding, brazing, machining, and coating. The volume also covers design-related topics such as material types, properties, specifications, selection criteria, testing, analysis, and predictive modeling.
