The purpose of this lecture is to outline various casting processes, several defects The casting process involves pouring of liquid metal in to a mold cavity and. Shell Building. • The next step in the process is to build a ceramic shell around the wax tree. • This shell will eventually become the mold that metal is poured into. Casting involves pouring/injecting molten material into a prepared cavity. On solidification the metal takes the form of the cavity. • Cavity is formed within a Mould.

The basic reason of metals reinforced with hard ceramic particles or fibers are improved properties than its original material like strength, stiffness etc. Stir casting process is mainly used for manufacturing of particulate reinforced metal matrix composite PMMC. Manufacturing of aluminum alloy based casting composite by stir casting is one of the most economical method of processing MMC.
The latter is a common means of making washstands, washstand tops and shower stalls, with the skilled working of multiple colors resulting in simulated staining patterns as is often found in natural marble or travertine. Raw castings often contain irregularities caused by seams and imperfections in the molds,  as well as access ports for pouring material into the molds.
Fettling can add significantly to the cost of the resulting product, and designers of molds seek to minimize it through the shape of the mold, the material being cast, and sometimes by including decorative elements. Casting process simulation uses numerical methods to calculate cast component quality considering mold filling, solidification and cooling, and provides a quantitative prediction of casting mechanical properties, thermal stresses and distortion.
Simulation accurately describes a cast component's quality up-front before production starts. The casting rigging can be designed with respect to the required component properties. This has benefits beyond a reduction in pre-production sampling, as the precise layout of the complete casting system also leads to energy, material, and tooling savings. The software supports the user in component design, the determination of melting practice and casting methoding through to pattern and mold making, heat treatment, and finishing.
This saves costs along the entire casting manufacturing route. Casting process simulation was initially developed at universities starting from the early '70s, mainly in Europe and in the U. Since the late '80s, commercial programs such as AutoCAST and MAGMA are available which make it possible for foundries to gain new insight into what is happening inside the mold or die during the casting process.

Dhindaw they found a Table A comparative analysis of different technique good combination of improved Ultimate Tensile used for fabrication  Strength UTS and tensile elongation is obtained . Experiments have been conducted by varying weight fraction C.
Stir casting: Ray introduced alumina particles into an aluminum increase in weight percentage of ceramic materials  melt by stirring molten aluminum alloys containing the ceramic powders.
Mechanical stirring in the furnace is a key II. The resultant molten alloy, with A key challenge in the processing of composites is to ceramic particles, can then be used for die casting, homogeneously distribute the reinforcement phases to permanent mold casting, or sand casting. Stir casting is achieve a defect-free microstructure.
The relatively low material cost and suitability for The cast composites are sometimes further extruded to automatic processing has made the particulate-reinforced reduce porosity, refine the microstructure, and homogenize composite preferable to the fiber-reinforced composite for the distribution of the reinforcement.
A major concern automotive applications. Primary processes for associated with the stir casting process is the segregation of manufacturing of AMCs at industrial scale can be classified reinforcing particles which is caused by the surfacing or into two main groups.
Liquid state processes: The final distribution of the particles in the Liquid state processes include stir casting, compo casting solid depends on material properties and process parameters and squeeze casting spray casting and in situ reactive such as the wetting condition of the particles with the melt, processing, ultrasonic assisted casting .
Solid state processes: The distribution of the particles in the molten matrix Solid state process include Powder blending followed by depends on the geometry of the mechanical stirrer, stirring consolidation PM processing , high energy ball milling, parameters, placement of the mechanical stirrer in the melt, friction Stir Process, diffusion bonding and vapors deposition melting temperature, and the characteristics of the particles techniques.
The selection of the processing route depends on added .
In this process, the matrix material . The melt is then cooled down to a temperature for discontinuous metal matrix composites, stir casting is between the liquids and solidus points and kept in a generally accepted as a particularly promising route, semi-solid state.
At this stage, the preheated particles are currently practiced commercially. Its advantages lie in its added and mixed. The slurry is again heated to a fully liquid simplicity, flexibility and applicability to large quantity state and mixed thoroughly.
This two-step mixing process production. It is also attractive because, in principle, it allows a Among all the well-established metal matrix composite conventional metal processing route to be used, and hence fabrication methods, stir casting is the most economical.
For minimizes the final cost of the product.
This liquid that reason, stir casting is currently the most popular metallurgy technique is the most economical of all the commercial method of producing aluminum based Available routes for metal matrix composite production and composites. Composite Material: For this research For manufacturing of composite material by stir casting work we had selected material as follows.
As there is various process parameters if they properly B. PAMC under study A. Stirring speed: An advantage of Stirring speed is the important process parameter as using aluminium as matrix material is casting technology is stirring is necessary to help in promoting wetability i.
Stirring speed will material. Aluminium alloy is associated with some directly control the flow pattern of the molten metal. Hence flow pattern should be controlled turbulence steel. But with proper reinforcement and treatment the flow. Pattern of flow from inward to outward direction is strength can be increased to required level.
In our project we kept speed from rpm. As Table3. Stirring temperature: It is related to the 0- 0. Aluminium 0. The processing temperature is mainly influence the viscosity of Al matrix. The change of C. Reinforcement- viscosity influences the particle distribution in the matrix. Particles of Al2O3, SiC and graphite of mesh size are The viscosity of liquid decreased when increasing processing used as reinforcement. It SiC: This is due to the fact reinforcement. The density of Sic 3. Reinforcement preheat temperature: Furthermore, Sic is easily available gases present within reinforcement.
The preheating of also and has good wetability with aluminum alloys. Addition of promotes the wetability of reinforcement with matrix . Addition of Mg: Addition of Silicon carbide particle results in Addition of Magnesium enhances the wetability.
However Excellent Mechanical properties this produces a very hard increase the content above 1wt. Stirring time: For uniform distribution of reinforcement in matrix in metal flow pattern should from outward to inward. Table 3. Along that graphite F. Blade Angle: This The blade angle and number of blades are prominent crucible is placed in muffle which is made up of high ceramic factor which decides the flow pattern of the liquid metal at alumina.
