Title: INGOT MOLD HEATING AS A METHOD OF CONTROLLING METAL QUALITY

Abstract

BS>A process was developed on a pilot plant scale for vacuum-casting U ingots, using liquation techniques with heated molds. In an experiment designed to statistically evaluate the effects of mold heating and associated melting techniques, marked increases in metal quality were achieved. The improved methods of vacuum-casting U ingots were demonstrated to give more economical production of metallic fuel elements. (auth)
