Scope: Casting is the first stage of shaping and forming and the casting defects need to be mitigated throughout the processing to assure high-quality products. Original and review papers are invited on melt refining and processing (e.g., fluxing, filtration, degassing, modification), various casting processes (e.g., thermal and stress gradients control), and downstream processing (e.g., homogenization) where the process parameters are linked to the formation or mitigation of casting defects such as porosity, inclusions, cracking, and segregation.
