Description

Principles of Casting Technology. Instructor: Dr. Pradeep K. Jha, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, IIT Roorkee.

The course focuses on understanding the basics of science and technology of casting processes. Metal casting industries have evolved during the past hundred years because of advancements in technologies. The properties of the cast metals significantly depends upon the type of molding, melting, solidification and post treatment practices. This needs to be understood by the young students as well as practicing shop floor engineers so that products with superior qualities can be cast. The basic purpose of this course is to provide a sound understanding of concepts and principles of casting technology so as to enable them to be conversant with advances in these methods in the long run towards increasing the productivity of casting industries.
