Science and Engineering of Casting Solidification, Second Edition
The author here attempts to describe solidification theory through the complex mathematical apparatus that includes partial differential equations and numerical analysis, required for a fundamental treatment of the problem. The mathematics is however restricted to the elements essential to attain a working knowledge in the field. This is in line with the main goal of the book, which is to educate the reader in the fast moving area of computational modeling of solidification of castings. In this, its second edition, an extra chapter has been provided on semi-solid casting. While the book is not intended to be a monograph, for the sake of completion, a special effort has been made to introduce the reader to the latest developments in solidification theory, even when they have no engineering applications at this time. In this respect, this is a unique attempt to integrate the newest information in a textbook format.
