Steel is the most versatile of the structural engineering materials, so more grades of steel are available for casting than any other type of alloy. The casting of steel presents a number special problems due mainly to the high casting temperature, typically 1550-1600°C, the volume shrinkage that occurs on solidification and the susceptibility of molten steel to oxide formation. Steel castings range in size from a few grams to hundreds of tonnes. Steel castings are often used in critical situations where optimum mechanical properties are essential so that freedom from casting defects is particularly important.
