The program was designed to develop a completely integrated furnace- valve-mold ferrous casting system that will produce quality castings in the five to twenty-five pound class at a higher speed and lower cost than is possible by present casting methods. Efforts have been directed in three major areas Design and fabricate an experimental melting and casting unit capable of examining several casting process possibilities determine the feasibility of a magnetohydrodynamic MHD valve using laboratory scale equipment and, develop a mold coating for graphite or some other suitable mold material that will provide the properties required of a permanent mold in the automatic casting process envisioned.
