In an effort to quantify such differences, a team of researchers compared the final mechanical properties and microstructure of aluminum castings when using copper-aluminum composite and cast iron chills. The results appear in the paper, "Effect of Different Chill Materials on Aluminum Casting Solidification and Mechanical Properties" by Steve Robison, American Foundry Society, Schaumburg, Ill.; Stephen Gonczy; Gateway Materials Technology, Mount Prospect, Ill.; Kai Hartman, Denison Industries, Denison, Texas; and Robin Foley, University of Alabama, Birmingham, Ala.
