"In this, his latest book, Prof Campbell expands and develops many of the topics that he has previously considered and includes the more conventional casting technology subjects in one complete reference guide. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on casting quality, or the minimisation of defects, and Johnâs passion for his subject shines through. He takes careful note of the basic science, the physics and maths of how liquids flow, cool and solidify, but does not âblind with scienceâ. Indeed his many years of practical problem solving with foundries means that he recognises the many constraints faced by the methods engineer. Given that during the casting process there are so many ways in which the metal quality can be compromised, his aim throughout is for foundries to be able to produce castings of consistent quality at lowest cost. Above all he wants to encourage a considered approach to the design of the running system and to the metal supply systemâ¦ The ideal book for metallurgists and foundry engineers who design, specify or manufacture metal castings and a âmust haveâ reference guide for every foundry."--Foundry
