This text was developed for students, process engineers, and manufacturing engineers who wish to apply the quantitative fundamentals of heat transfer to the metal casting industry. This second edition includes the conversion throughout, to the more universally acceptable SI units. Considered to be a fundamental teaching book, the numerous examples throughout make it ideal for an undergraduate course in materials processing or manufacturing. The first two chapters review heat transfer and concepts pertaining to solidification. The middle chapters emphasize conduction heat transfer and casting solidification. Finally, the last two chapters show how heat transfer during solidification can be used in riser design and also supply an introduction to numerical methods for those students or casting engineers who wish to venture further.
