Prerequisite
Knowledge of Elements of Metallurgy and basic science skills
Rationale
Metallurgical engineers need to know different types of Foundry processes for production of intricate part in combination with the accuracy, tolerance & surface finish. The hands on skill as regards to Foundry Technology are must be it at a scale of mass, batch, or unit production. The present course focus on giving the exposure of various Foundry processes for a product whose scale ranges from miniature to extralarge, Moulding-Coring practice, Melting inoculations practices, Quality Control of the casting. This course will help Metallurgical engineer understand the basic underlying principles in various casting processes & apply his/her knowledge in the field of metal casting.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Express Knowledge about the fundamentals of the casting, basic terminology related to casting process.
2. Decide the alternative method for the manufacturing of component for engg. Applications.
3. Prepare the methoding of the casting.
4. Decide correct melting practice of different cast alloy & different melt-treatments.
5. Minimize to defects generated during casting.
6. Explain various temperature measurement and inoculations treatments
7. Select the relevant refractory material for the foundry.
8. Demonstrate the ability to select the proper molding material, type of furnace with relevant refractory material, use appropriate casting design and temperature measurement device to obtain quality cast products

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
