Certificate in Materials Science - Solidification and Casting MATL 4825   Solidification and Casting
CREDIT HOURS: 3
The fundamental principles of solidification and practical applications in the casting industry are dealt within this course. The topics covered are nucleation processes, the growth of single crystals, plane front, cellular and dendritic solidification in single and polyphase alloys, solidification of castings, ingot moulding and core making processes, moulding sands, design of risers and gates, and the melting of metals. The laboratory experiments cover the growth of single crystals of pure metals, alloys, and semiconductors; pattern, mould and core making; and, the casting of commercial alloys.
