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. During the six months covered by this report work was performed on the following subjects. 1 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. 2 Work was carried out to determine the effect of cast Rheocast structure on homogenization heat treatment response and mechanical properties of high temperature alloys. 3 An economic analysis of the new machine casting process was initiated.
