The conception of this Book

This book started as a series of articles to answer both specific questions that I have been asked, as well as questions that I was curious about myself. While addressing these questions, I realized that many commonly held "truths" about die-casting were scientifically incorrect. Because of the importance of these results, I have decided to make them available to the wider community of die-casting engineers. However, there is a powerful group of individuals who want to keep their monopoly over ``knowledge'' in the die-casting industry and to prevent the spread of this information. Because of this, I have decided that the best way to disseminate this information is to write a book. Please be advised that English is my weak point. This book is my attempt to put this information, and more, in one place.
