Porosity in castings is a major defect since it affects the mechanical properties. In particular porosities are sites for the initiation of fatigue cracks. Therefore, the reduction of porosity fraction and size, the control of porosity distribution and morphology are crucial for the optimization of mechanical resistance of as cast components.
