Title

Metal-mold interactions in highly alloyed steels

Alternative Title

Metal mold interactions in highly alloyed steels

Abstract

"The work contained here is a collection of papers dealing with metal/mold interactions in net shaped cast steels. These unwanted interactions lead to surface defects that warrant extensive rework or in extreme cases, scrapped casting. The overall goal of these papers was to understand the mechanisms behind the surface defects that form in investment casting and no-bake casting. Even though the molding media may be different, the underlying goal of understanding why coating breaches occur and identifying approaches to prevent metal penetration and casting surface defects is the same"--Abstract, leaf iv.
