A BOOK ABOUT THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FOUNDRY
The All-Russian Scientific-Research Institute of Aviation Materials (VIAM) in cooperation with MATI – Russian State Technological University named after K.E. Tsiolkovsky have published a book entitled “The fundamentals of foundry”.
This book is a real rarity of scientific and technical literature, it consists of lecture notes related to the course “The fundamentals of foundry”, which was planned, carried out and constantly improved by an outstanding personality Prof. Mikhail V. Sharov.
The course of lectures was delivered in the 50th -70th of the XX century at the academic department named “Technology of foundry” of the Moscow aviation technological university named after K.E. Tsiolkovsky. This book was a reference book for several generations of students, postgraduates and young scientists allowing them to understand better the complex multifactorial processes of foundry engineering.
Over the last years after the death of Mikhail Sharov, the theory of foundry processes was uninterruptedly improved, some provisions were revised, however their bases, as well as many other word-known constants couldn`t be essentially changed. Therefore, the presented course of lectures is actual up to now as it allows specialists working directly in foundries to choose the right technology solutions.
The published book is identical to the lecture notes compiled by Prof. M. V. Sharov and stylistics, manner and features of presentation and units of measure are reserved in the edition.
It should be noted, that Academician of RAS Evgeny N. Kablov, Director General of VIAM, received a letter from Alexander V. Rozhdestvensky, Rector of MATI-RSTU, in which he thanked for the published book.
In the nearest future, the main number of printed copies will be transmitted to the MATI-RSTU.
