      Fonellosa Caro, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07-14)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This document is a report on the work completed in the Foundry process team, between the months of February and June 2016-2017, at the École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tarbes (ENIT), as part of the European Project Semester ...
    • Improvement of the prototype machine to obtain light alloys in semi-solid state 

      Catarau, Olga; Boogaart, Justin; Lochhead, Kerr; Libera, Wojciech (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-11)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      When casting metals, many aspects must be controlled to produce a metal alloy that has the optimum physical qualities possible. One such way of improving these physical properties is casting alloys in a semi-solid state. ...
    • Metal mobilization from base-metal smelting slag dumps in Sierra Almagrera (Almería, Spain) 

      Navarro Flores, Andrés Francisco; Cardellach, Esteve; Mendoza, José L.; Corbella Cordomí, Mercé; Domènech Rubio, Luis Miguel (2008)
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Smelting slags associated with base-metal vein deposits of the Sierra Almagrera area (SE Spain) show high concentrations of Ag (<5–180 ppm), As (12–750 ppm), Cu (45–183 ppm), Fe (3.2–29.8%), Pb (511–2150 ppm), Sb (22–620 ...
    • Preliminary Studies on Metal Adsorption by Waste Foundry Sand 

      Afonso, Ana (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-07-15)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      In the casting industries, sand is typically reused through the production cycles. Since sand for itself do not have the necessary properties to this process, it’s necessary to introduce binders to force the sand grains ...
