This article is a continuation of the studies on the solidification of free graphite cast irons carried out by researchers of the Metallurgy Division of INTEMA that started several years ago. In this study, the authors applied the DAAS (Direct Austempering After Solidification) technique developed previously to examine the solidification macrostructure of SGI, together with specific colour metallography techniques, to examine the solidification structure of CGI. The authors are honoured to win this prize, which is considered a recognition of long lasting research efforts and which encourages the continuation of studies in the field. The Worshipful Company of Founders is gratefully acknowledged. - 2017 prize winners
