International Journal of Metalcasting marks 50th issue
The International Journal of Metalcasting, the American Foundry Society’s technical and research publication, released its 50th issue this month.
Research Board approves project from Copper Alloys Division
A new AFS research project will investigate porosity in no-lead brass castings that contributes to high scrap rates. The AFS Research Board approved the project from the Copper Alloys Division, titled “Turbulent Gating Effect on C89833 Alloy,” in September.
The research will help determine the effect of different non-turbulent gating systems on pressure tightness and mechanical properties of C89833 material.
