"Science and Engineering of Casting Solidification, Second Edition" covers the essentials of solidification science of metals and alloys at macro- and micro-length scales at cooling rates specific to commercial castings and rapid solidification processing. The mathematical fundamentals necessary to build a working knowledge in the field, specifically partial differential equations and numerical analysis, are introduced. Each topic begins with the description of the underlying physics, followed by the mathematics required to build analytical and numerical models. Wherever possible, a detailed description of the architecture of the numerical model is provided, followed by examples of models built on the Excel spreadsheet. Features of this new edition include: expanded sections on peritectic solidification and shrinkage porosity mechanisms and modeling; a new chapter addressing rapid solidification and bulk metallic glasses; additional solved problems; and, revised and simplified derivations of several models.
