QUESTION: 1

### Small amount of carbonaceous material sprinkled on the inner surface of mould cavity is called:

Solution: Facing sand is carbonaceous material sprinkled to get better surface finish.

QUESTION: 2

### Match List-I with List-II and select the correct answer using the code given below the lists:

Solution: Top gate causes turbulence due to high head and velocity

Parting gate most widely used and economical

Step gate multiple gates are used for heavy and large castings

QUESTION: 3

### A sand casting mould assembly is shown in the above figure. The elements marked A and B are respectively

Solution: The vertical tapered section is sprue. It is tapered to avoid aspiration.

QUESTION: 4

Which of the following are the requirements of an ideal gating system?

1. The molten metal should enter the mould cavity with as high velocity as possible.

2. It should facilitate complete filling of the mould cavity.

3. It should be able to prevent the absorption of air or gases from the surroundings in the molten metal while flowing through it.

Select the correct answer using the codes given below

Solution: Statement 1 is wrong because if the velocity is as high as possible the flow will become turbulent which results in sand erosion, respiration effects etc.

QUESTION: 5

The gating ratio for copper in gating system design refers to the ratio of areas of:

Solution: Gating ratio is sprue area: runner area: in-gate area.

QUESTION: 6

The relationship between total freezing time t, volume of the casting V and its surface area A, according to Chvorinov’s rule is:

Where ‘k’ is constant

Solution: As per Chvorinov’s rule Solidification time (t)

QUESTION: 7

A spherical drop of molten metal of radius 2 mm was found to solidify in 10 seconds. A similar drop of radius 4 mm would solidify in:

Solution: For spherical casting

QUESTION: 8

The ratio of surface area to volume for a unit volume of riser is minimum in case of:

Solution: For same volume the ratio of surface areas of sphere : cylinder : cube: is 4.84 : 5.54 : 6

QUESTION: 9

When an alloy solidifies over a range of temperature, the resulting casting structure is:

Solution: Solidification of pure metals: Columnar structure Solidification of alloys: Dendritic structure

QUESTION: 10

Directional solidification in castings can be improved by using:

Solution: Directional solidification in castings can be improved by chills and paddings.

QUESTION: 11

(A) investment casting

(B) die casting

(C) centrifugal casting

(D) shell mould casting

Solution: Intricate parts with close dimensional tolerance are made by using investment casting.

QUESTION: 14

Which one of the following processes produces a casting when pressure forces the molten metal into the mould cavity?

Solution: In pressure die casting the molten metal is pushed into a cavity by using a plunger.

QUESTION: 15

In which of the following are metal moulds are used?

Solution: Metallic moulds are used in die casting process.

QUESTION: 16

In a centrifugal casting method~:

Solution: No core is used in centrifugal casting method.

QUESTION: 17

Which of the following are the most likely characteristics in centrifugal casting?

Solution: In centrifugal casting fine grain size with high density is produced.
