Open: Machine Castings of Ferrous Alloys

ABSTRACT This is the first semi-annual report describing research conducted at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as part of a joint university-industry research program on machine casting of ferrous alloys. It covers a period of six months starting October 1 1975. At the time of initiation of this work the overall program had already been ni effect for 33 months. During the six months covered by this report work was performed on the following subjects.

A variety of casting systems were designed, constructed and operated. These included transparent, low and high temperature continuous slurry producers and a laboratory casting machine. Work was carried out to determine the effect of cast (Rheocast) structure on homogenization heat treatment response and mechanical properties of high temperature alloys. An economic analysis of the new machine casting process was initiated.
