Spawned by growing interest in ultrasonic technology and new developments in ultrasonic melt processing, the Second Edition of Ultrasonic Treatment of Light Alloy Melts discusses use of ultrasonic melt treatment in direct-chill casting, shape casting, rapid solidification, zone refining, and more, exploring the effects of power ultrasound on melt degassing, filtration, and refinement in aluminum and magnesium alloys. The fully revised and restructured Second Edition:Contains new, in-depth coverage of composite and nanocomposite materialsProvides a historical review of the last century of ultrasonic applications to metallurgyEmphasizes the fundamentals, mechanisms, and applications of ultrasonic melt processing in different light-metal technologiesFeatures new chapters on ultrasonic grain refinement, refinement of primary solid phases, and semi-solid processing of billets with nondendritic structureIncludes significant updates reflecting results obtained over the past two decades on different scales, from laboratory to full-scale industrial implementations
Complete with many new figures and examples, Ultrasonic Treatment of Light Alloy Melts, Second Edition delivers a comprehensive treatise on ultrasonic melt processing and cavitation, presenting essential guidelines for practical use and further development of the technology.

"This book, written by two acknowledged experts in the field, presents the reader with a most extensive overview of the subject of ultrasonic processing of light-metal melts, from the basic fundamentals to practical applications."
-Joseph C. Benedyk, Light Metal Age
"... an interesting and thorough review of an often-misunderstood field of art. ... quite clear and easy to understand. ... [The authors], as experts in this field, have not only covered the fundamentals and important aspects but also helped the reader appreciate the finer details with the data and examples presented. ... The materials are well organized when approached from a cover-to-cover approach, yet also divided into chapters and sections which are succinct and stand alone for quick reference. ... I found this book to be a thorough review of the fundamentals with the details needed to apply the concepts in many diverse fields and areas. ... Georgy Eskin is the premier scientist and innovator in applied ultrasonic treatments in light metals. ... This book is a must have in the library of any engineer or scientist who processes light metals today. While intended as a thorough review, I found the book to be a catalyzer of innovation."
