Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To know the thermodynamic and kinetic processes of the production phases of non-alloyed and alloyed steels for castings melted on electric induction and arc furnaces, to design and apply deoxidation, refining and alloying methods, to solve the methods of extracorporeal processing and the metallurgical defects of steel castings.Characterize the system of iron alloys for castings.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject provides theoretical and technological knowledge about the processes of casting and solidification of castings from foundry alloys. It focuses in particular on: alloy shrinkage, stress, casting and mold interaction, and determination of conditions for simulation of foundry processes.
