... parts such as Si 3 N 4 gas turbine engine components. Pressures as high as 10 MPa (1.5 ksi) have been used. A less common approach is vacuum casting, in which a vacuum is applied to the outside of a mold. This process can be used to increase casting rates with either the drain or solid casting...

... characteristic if one wants to bend, wind, or weave a fiber to make a complex–shaped final product. Fiber flexibility is associated with Young's modulus and the diameter. In high-modulus fibers, the diameter is the dominant parameter that controls flexibility. For a given modulus, the smaller the diameter, the...

..., such as a tube or pressure vessel, or a more complex shape, such as a wind turbine or helicopter rotor blade. As mentioned before, filament winding may use wet (or melted) resin or prepreg ( Ref 15 ). The fiber placement process is followed by some type of cure or molding process. This may simply...

... large mushy zones (liquidus-to-solidus spreads) and, because of the high heat of fusion of aluminum, tend to solidify more slowly than iron castings. Delivery of feed metal to areas where shrinkage is occurring in the casting is difficult, as the feed metal must wind its way through the growing...
