Authors: ERUKILEDE, ADEBOWALE
Issue Date: Nov-2008
Abstract: Cooking pot is an essential tool in any household and its importance cannot be over emphasized. This is brought to bare as a result of the ever increasing demand for cooked food in our homes and society at large,either in domestic or commercial quantity. Asides from using the pot for cooking, it can also be used for storing water and other domestic liquids. This project work deals with the design and production of a thin-walled aluminium alloy pot for domestic use. The choice of material was greatly influenced by it in- service condition, easy availability, castability and low cost. Green sand mould was used, having cope and drag with molten metal flowing into the mould under gravity, design was such that the use of risers were dispensed with. There is no doubt to the fact that considerable improvement could be made on the present design.
