Iron and Steel Castings Engineering Guide
Iron and Steel Castings Engineering Guide covers the interrelated factors that determine the quality, performance, and cost of castings made from iron and steel. It describes the engineering involved in optimizing component geometries for function and manufacturability. It explains how microstructure influences mechanical properties and how to achieve a target microstructure for product performance through melting, melt treatment, and heat treating. It familiarizes readers with molding and core making processes and how to implement them, along with filling, feeding, and cooling procedures, for specific materials, geometries, and microstructures. It includes examples highlighting best practices as well as issues and concerns such as process limitations, assembly constraints, distortion and internal stresses, casting defects, and overly aggressive designs. It also contains composition, property, and structure-related data for many types of cast iron and grades of steel and includes detailed process outlines and design guidelines for tooling, gating, and feeding systems.
