Introduction to Casting Alloys
A comparison of the commonly cast ferrous and nonferrous alloys will be presented. There will be discussions on casting applications, properties, and criteria for selection of the following alloys: iron, steel, copper aluminum, magnesium, zinc, and super alloys.
Class participants will learn to:
- Explain reasons for using the different alloy types.
- Describe the difference between ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
- List at least three criteria that must be considered during alloy selection.
- Explain the alloy classification system and list some common alloys, their mechanical and physical properties; and applications/industries.
