- G.M.RAJENDRA PRASAD. M.E., (I.I.Sc.)
As you read this book you will see voice of a person , who is eager to pass on
the knowledge he has acquired, in his career to the young and old alike in a very
simple –understandable language-and for those who had learnt metallurgy & foundry
practice in their acedemics, a reading material which will rekindle their forgotten
The gregarious knowledge outburst has been consolidated in such a short time
and in a simple language for those who had forgotten Metallurgy and Material sciences.
To say a few things about the author Sri Rajendraprasad, who had joined our company as
an enthusiastic youngster always seeking and exploring the knowledge of Material science
and technology . He had a very keen analytical mind-never say never die attitude-and an
excellent human being always keen to pass on the knowledge to others in simple terms. He is
a great storey teller in Foundry practice and Metallurgy. He showed lot of interest and
keenness in learning Methoding in Foundry and the feeding of castings.
We come across problems in FOUNDRY, which are challenging to a keen learner and from
my point of view it is the only production practice to have innumerable variables, and a
tricky mind teaser, each and every minute of our lives, through the industry.
Can you read this book with an open mind?
If so you will see the world of Metallurgy & Foundry, through the eyes of Mr Rajendra
Prasad, and you may expand your mindset about Metallurgy in totality.
THIS BOOK IS FOR YOUR KNOWLEDGE BANK OF THE FUTURE.
