Abstract : The study deals with the determination of characteristic physical and mechanical properties of restorative dental materials, and effect of manipulative variables on these properties. From the study an entirely new dental gold inlay casting technic was developed, based on the principle of controlled water added hygroscopic technic. The method has had successful dental applications and is a recognized method of dental inlay casting procedure. Evaluations were made also, of the microstructure and casting procedures for cobalt base alloys used for partial denture restorations. Investigation was made of the casting of gold alloys to embedded metals, as well as an evaluation of the properties of dental gold alloy wires. Additional studies were made on denture base resins, impression materials, and dental amalgam alloys. These studies have contributed to an improved understanding of the technics of manipulation necessary to develop the maximum quality in the finished restorations. Reports appearing in twenty-four technical publications in the periodical dental literature are listed. (Author)
