With particular emphasis on the ability of castings to meet customer requirements, this guide tells you what you need to know about physical properties and other pertinent information in the design and use of steel castings. It's been extensively revised from the previous edition to cover new areas like rapid prototyping techniques, recent developments in molding methods, and revamped descriptions of ASTM standards. You'll find an appendix listing ISO standards, too.


The coverage on heat treatment has been greatly revised and expanded to give you a greater understanding of the principles involved in optimizing mechanical properties.
