Abstract

"This thesis is focused on the repeatability of carbon pick-up, defect formation and metal velocity in lost foam casting of low carbon steel. One of the very important problems in lost foam casting of steel is understood to be high concentration of carbon at certain locations due to the organic environment.l The foam decomposition product is rich in carbon and affects the steel castings significantly, as it changes the fatigue properties and toughness of the casting. In addition, the carbon increases hardness and promotes quench cracks"--Abstract, leaf iii.
