About the book

This book aims to explain important metal casting processes commonly applied in ferrous and non-ferrous foundries: continuous casting, investment casting, squeeze casting, centrifugal casting, rheo casting and thixo casting, and vacuum die casting processes. Encouraged topics include process parameters involved in each casting process, process cost effectiveness, advantages, disadvantages, benefits and limitations of individual casting process, factors governing the selection of a particular casting process for producing castings, production rate of castings, comparison of casting processes based on various aspects, casting defects produced in each casting process, remedial measures, quality control of castings, and different types of metals and alloys which are processed by different casting processes.

Dr. T. R. Vijayaram is a research professor at the Centre of Materials Engineering and Research Medicine, Bharath Institute of Higher Education and Research, India. He is an expert in the fields of materials and metallurgical, manufacturing, and mechanical engineering. He received his B.E. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Madurai Kamaraj University, followed by M.E. degree in Industrial Metallurgy from PSG College of Technology, Bharathiyar University. He obtained his Ph.D research degree in Mechanical Engineering from Universiti Putra Malaysia, Malaysia. Afterwards, he worked as a rector researcher in metallurgy at DCCI, Genoa University, Italy. His passion in academics, research, and education led him to obtain MBA in Educational Management and MA in Sociology from the University of Madras. He is also a chartered engineer (India) and a member of several professional and scientific bodies in India and abroad like ISTE (Life Member), IEI, IIF, and SAE (USA). He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, FIE, India. Recently, Dr. T. R. Vijayaram received the Distinguished Scientist Award in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering for his outstanding contribution in metallurgy. He has published more than 210 papers in international and national journals, conferences, broadsheets, and magazines. His areas of research include materials engineering, metallurgical engineering, manufacturing engineering, and mechanical engineering. He is also actively involved in research in the areas of metal matrix composites, polymer matrix composites, foundry technology, ladle metallurgy and molten metal treatment, metal casting solidification and simulation, special casting techniques, squeeze casting technology and computer simulation of casting solidification, new materials and process development (especially aerospace engineering materials), ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, powder metallurgy, NDT, materials characterization and mechanical testing of materials, heat treatment of metals and alloys, solidification processing of metals, alloys and composites, microgravity solidification, die casting, die design, metallography, and microstructure-property correlation. For his work, he obtained one crore Indian Rupees in research funds from international research funding agencies.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing or reviewing. I assist authors in preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
