Abstract : Advances in casting technology can lead to a single casting replacing a complex fabrication of wrought components with consequent cost and weight benefits but there is traditionally a reluctance by designers to trust castings. The object of the Specialist Meeting was to present the current state of developments of advanced casting technology, and to bring together designers and materials and processing engineers for a full exchange of views. The papers presented comprehensive review of the state of casting technology development, and illustrate the significant advances made over the last few years. It became clear from the discussion that the use of castings, especially aluminum alloy castings, for main structural applications is likely to increase significantly in the near future.
