3 a. Write a note on refinement and modification of cast structure.
b. Explain Chvorinovs rule and its influence of mold characteristic and cast metal.

4 a. What are the requirements of a riser? Write a short notes on riser shapes and riser size.

5 b. With a neat ketch, explain gating system with modem nomenclature.
a. With a neat sketch, explain vacuum moulding (V -process). (10 Marks)
b. In a foundry it was required to obtain a cast metal with the following composition:
Carbon 3.2 to 3.6 % Silicon 2.3 to 2.6%
Manganese 0.6 to 0.8 % Sulphur upto 0.8%
Phosphorous 0.4 to 0.6%
If the following raw ~aterials are available, estimate the best charge proportions.
C Si Mn S P
3.5 3.00 1.00 0.02 0.4
3.2 1.5 0.5 0.01 0.8
3.5 2.5 0.8 0.02 0.5
3.5 1.8 0.6 0.08 0.5
3.2 1.2 0.6 0.10 0.4
Pig iron 1
Pig iron 2
Pig iron 3
Scrap I
Scrap 2
Ferrosilicon containing 50% silicon.
If the charge consist of, i) Pig iron] = 25 % ii) Pig iron 2 = ] 5% iii) Pig iron 3 = 10%
iv) Scrap] = 20% v) Scrap 2 = 30%
The loss or gains of various elements is as follows:
C = no gain/loss Mn = loss 15% Si = loss 10%
Phosphorous = no loss / gain
