For the smart maths people out there This chart says http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/volumexpansioncoefficientssolidsd_1894.html the volumetric thermal expansion coefficient of silver is 58.3 (106 m/(m K)) i can only assume they mean m^3 since that is how you would measure volume. So if i multiply 58.3*0.000001 i get 0.0000583 So silver expands at 0.0000583 meters cubed per meter cubed per kelvin. Room temperature is about 300 kelvin. The melting point of silver is about 1233 kelvin. So that's a difference of 933 kelvin. So then i just multiply 0.0000583*933 and get 0.0543939 meters cubed per meter cubed of change. Ive got to be honest that seems crazy. a 5.5% change in size as it cools? there is no way that can be right. Its written as a linear expansion coefficient e.g. (m/m K) not (m^3/(m K)), a linear coefficient which is change in length per meter and degree of temperature, volumetric is 3x linear for a solid, but another reference I have says the volumetric expansion coefficient for silver is 54 *10^6 (m^3/(m K)) AT 20C  I don't think solid to liquid volume change can't be calculated using a constant  sorry. it doesn't need to be. the only point at which shrinking matters is past the point at which it has transitioned from liquid to solid. as long as its liquid it can flow freely through out the chamber of the mould. so the point at which it becomes solid is the upper bound for what i need to calculate.

awesome! i can never make heads or tales of fancy math stuff like that. it looks like french to me. i just have to work through the logic in my head

BUT I don't think solid to liquid volume change can be calculated using a constant  so your 5% may be wrong because you have a 'state change'
yes, the coefficients are not constant, they depend on the temperature and the pressure

yes, the coefficients are not constant, they depend on the temperature and the pressure ok well that's really going to go out of my league. can any of you smart guys tell me how much the volume would change when cooling from 1234K to 300K?

That is pretty complicated.

Maybe chanc3r's solid/liquid numbers are the most useful (depending on your accuracy requirements)... until someone finds the nonlinear coefficients for silver density of solid silver at room temperature = 10.49gcm^3 density of liquid silver at melting point= 9.320gcm^3
perhaps this is a simpler  the ratio of the densities will give you a volume change between liquid silver and room temperature solid silver.

good point. the mean between those values would be a good estimation.

That is pretty complicated. yes i do and yes i know. what we are talking about right now is just part of the complications I assume that you cast at 1 atm, so the process is roughtly at constant pressure. For a good approximation, I believe you need to use integral formula with alpha(T) function of temperature. I don<T know, but some table might exist in the litterature at constant pressure (1 atm). If you have this curve, I dont believe the phase change will do anything because it effect will already be in the curve alpha(T).

Depending on accuracy you don'T have to use integral, but only do stair approximation of the curve. and compute 100*dV/V for a certain number of dT interval. After which you sum up each 100*dV/V computed.

good point. the mean between those values would be a good estimation. if just calculating with an example, 1000 g of silver: liquid : V = 1000 g / 9.3 g/cm3 = 107.5268 cm3 solid: V = 1000 g / 10.49 g/cm3 = 95.328 cm3 Volume change X % is broadly 11.3 %. (if you need more accurate, then it needs equation V1  (V1/100*X) = V2

anon: I'm pretty sure your calculation of 5.5% difference is correct, you used the formulas and values correctly. a temperature difference of about 900 degrees is pretty severe, I think a shrinking of 5% is absolutely possible.

if there happens that liquid > solid change, then the volume change is more (11.3 %), according to those densities http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver

maybe anon can start by that and adjusting by experience. If anon cast many silver bar, then It only take a couple adjustment from experiment to make it right. I don't know. Is that what you plan anon? Or you want to be right the first time? You can use the newton method or the bissection method to adjust rapidly your experimental guess each time given the results of your previous casting.

Do you have some experience in casting? or some people around you know that science? Casting at 12001300K is very dangerous.
