|Title: ||CASTING OF BRAKE DRUM USING GREEN SAND MOULDING SYSTEM|

|Abstract: ||Nigeria is blessed with a lot of metallic mineral resources which can be used by
the foundry industries to meet the local needs of the country.
It is a pity that foundries are yet to better enhance metal manufacture into shape
and sizes required to aid domestic and even automobile industries. This is due to the fact
good knowledge of pattern and core box making is still needed for moulds and cares
preparation for casting operations.
Thus the project therefore, presents a detail knowledge of patterns making and
moulding techniques (Green sand) using scrap cast iron materials as the metallic material
for the project considerations.
The product used for the project work is wood which can be obtained locally and
cheaply_ This project is therefore a report of a design whose level of technology is
adequately low, as to be within the technical capability of a local foundry workshop_|
