The work contained in this critical review was carried out as part of the National Physical Laboratoryâ€™s MTS programme on Processability, the object being to provide the best available data for selected commercial alloys to help with the mathematical modelling of processes such as casting and primary and secondary refining. Mathematical modelling has become an established tool with which to improve process control and efficiency, and product quality. Models have been developed to such a stage that one of the prime requirements is now for accurate, reliable data for the thermophysical properties involved in the heat and fluid flow processes. There are few data for these available in the standard literature on commercial alloys and so this report is of interest to all users of mathematical modelling processes.
