The latest casting and processing technologies have raised the importance of magnesium in the transportation industry. As a structural material with low density and a very high strength-to-weight ratio, magnesium can reduce vehicle weight and, in turn, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase fuel economy. This book provides valuable information on: • melt control • process control • casting and solidification • heat treatment • materials selection • various casting processes The 18 chapter authors are world-class scientists, professors and engineers with countless years of industrial and laboratory experience. Each chapter was also reviewed by qualified metallurgists/materials engineers from the metalcasting industry, academia and research laboratories to ensure that only the highest quality information was accepted for publication. Technology for Magnesium Castings will be of great interest to many individuals involved in the metalcasting industry, especially the casting designer and process engineer. It will also be an invaluable tool for students of metallurgy, materials science and metalcasting.
