Abstract : This report presents the work done during the first year of a program designed to develop a ferrous casting system that will produce quality castings at a higher speed and lower cost than is possible by present casting methods. The work has been done primarily on the following topics: (1) Design and fabrication of a pilot melting and casting unit; (2) Development of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) valve to control and stop metal flow; and (3) Development of a permanent mold.
