Title

Shell cracking in investment casting industry

Abstract

"Shell cracking is an age-old problem facing the investment casting industry. One of the major reasons for shell cracking [is] thermal expansion of pattern wax during autoclaving. Parameters of the wax pattern-making process were considered, including injection flow orientation, reclamation procedures, and injection pressure."--Abstract, page iv.
