This text seeks to provide a comprehensive technical foundation and practical examples for casting process modelling technology. It highlights fundamental theory for solidification and useful applications for industrial production. It also details shape and ingot castings, semi-solid metalworking, and spray forming.


"From the foreword… …The combination of theory and application presented in this book represents the 'new engineering' of casting processes. It is recommended reading for the experienced as well as the newcomer to the metal casting field, to provide tools for the present, and also an understanding of the direction and power of this new engineering. "
