Component Casting 7,5 Credits

Course Contents

The course intends to give the student basic knowledge and in-depth knowledge of component production of cast metallic materials, including castings design, material properties and manufacturing processes. In the course a technical scientific approach is used to both a systematic approach and a mathematical language to be able to analyze and evaluate solutions and associated problems.

The course contains the following:
- Manufacture of components by casting
- Applications of heat transfer; including heat conduction, convection and heat radiation for
calculation of solidification and feeding
- Applications of fluid flow, Bernoulli's equation, continuity equation, lamellar and
turbulent flow
- Cast materials, solidification, microstructure and properties
- In depth understanding of phase diagrams
- The relationship between casting process, microstructure and properties of cast alloys
- Shrinkage and gas porosity formation
- Rules of thumb for castings design and materials selection
- Introduction to computer simulation of the casting process
