Fins vs. Chills: Solidifying an answer
Two of the most widely used methods to control nonferrous casting solidification are cooling fins and external chills. Although these methods are applied differently, their functions provide for a more sufficient solidification process. This paper compares the effectiveness of the two cooling aids and develops practical recommendations on their applications.
