Title

Lost foam castings in steel: determination of the foam displacement mechanism and carbon pick-up

Abstract

"Lost foam casting process has been widely adopted to manufacture complex parts without the need for cores. Numeric modeling of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam displacement is only recently reaching a point where it can provide useful insight in helping optimize design and process variables. The objective of this thesis study was to develop an understanding of the pattern replacement mechanism in the lost foam casting process in steels"--Abstract, leaf iii.
