ABOUT THE COVER
At the Indianapolis, Indiana, foundry of the Navistar International Transporation Corporation, a worker prepares to move a gray iron cast engine block manufactured for a midsize truck. The application of cast iron in the automotive field is one of the three technical topics examined in this month's issue. The remaining technical coverage addresses the other two of the "big three" in primary metals--aluminum and copper.
