CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This text was developed for students, process engineers, and manufacturing
engineers who wish to apply the quantitative fundamentals of heat transfer to
the metal casting industry. This second edition includes the conversion
throughout, to the more universally acceptable SI units. Considered to be a
fundamental teaching book, the numerous examples throughout make it ideal for
an undergraduate course in materials processing or manufacturing. The first two
chapters review heat transfer and concepts pertaining to solidification. The
middle chapters emphasize conduction heat transfer and casting solidification.
Finally, the last two chapters show how heat transfer during solidification can
be used in riser design and also supply an introduction to numerical methods
for those students or casting engineers who wish to venture further.
