15th to 19th of May 2017

Organized by the Department of Material and Manufacturing at School of Engineering,
Jönköping University, Sweden.

Cast iron castings are one of the oldest cast materials explored in advanced engineering application. Scientific research performed in the field of cast iron development has contributed to expand the limits of this material. New investigation techniques and the increased use of computer simulation necessitate continuously revision of the knowledge’s. A course on metallurgy, solidification and modeling of different cast iron types is offered with the scope to review the latest developments. The course will focus on both classic fundamental theories and newly developed models based on modern investigation and control methods. A foundry visit to one of the most advanced cast iron foundries in Scandinavia will be included.

Who should attend?

The course is recommended for PhD students, researchers, engineers, technicians, quality and laboratory personal at Iron Foundries, Engineering Designers working with Cast Iron products who want to refresh and update their knowledge about cast iron.

Attending participants are welcome to bring questions to be answered during the course. Samples with casting defects or other anomalies are also welcome to be sent to the course organizer. This will be prepared, color etched and discussed ether during the panel discussion or separately.

PhD students can be examined according to the rules of the Research School at the School of Engineering at Jönköping University.

Separate diploma for participation and for successful examination will be issued.
