"Age strengthening of gray cast iron has become a critical issue with metal casters trying to optimize their process for the closest conformance to properties. This necessitated more robust and precise methods to predict age strengthening. Most foundries use age strengthening behavior to cast at hight carbon equivalents to facilitate smaller gating systems. Also, it is well known in the casting industry that the tool life improves with aging. Hence these foundries require a model to predict aging behavior and accelerate the mechanism from days to hours. This research focuses on the methods of composition adjustments to control aging properties, creating a model to predict the aging behavior at different temperatures and understanding the mechanism of aging"--Abstract, page iii.
