Summary

This subject represents a wider application basis of the magisterial study in the field of foundry. It is widening the profound knowledge on the most- extensive iron alloy used in the foundry practice – especially the high-grade cast irons such as the grey cast iron, alloyed cast irons, malleable cast irons and the spheroidal graphite cast irons.
