Steels represent the most widely-used metallic alloy, possessing a wide range of microstructures and mechanical properties. By examining the mechanical properties of steels in conjunction with microstructure this book provides a valuable description of the development and behaviour of these materials.
Introduction to Dislocations is widely recognized to provide the essential knowledge base required for further study, research and technological application in the field. This update brings the book's coverage, references and context in line with the latest developments to ensure it remains a core reference for all those studying and working in the field today.
Metal injection molding combines the useful features of powder metallurgy and plastic injection molding to enable the production of tiny complicated metal components having outstanding mechanical properties. The Handbook of metal injection molding offers a comprehensive guide to this essential technology and its applications.
Powder metallurgy (PM) is a popular metal forming technology used to manufacture dense and precision components. A range of powder and component forming routes can be used to create an end product with specific properties for a specific application or industry. Advancements in powder metallurgy explores several materials and techniques used for powder metallurgy and the use of this technology across a range of application areas.
The manufacture and use of the powders of non-ferrous metals has been taking place for many years in what was previously Soviet Russia, and a huge amount of knowledge and experience has built up in that country over the last forty years or so. Although accounts of the topic have been published in the Russian language, no English language account has existed until now.
This book contains the Proceedings of the International Conference "Copper ´06". It gives a broad and up-to-date overview on the recent progress in research and development of copper and copper alloys for usage in modern industrial applications. The current challenges and changes in the international copper industry are also highlighted and the reader gets insight in the driving forces on the international copper market.
The A-Z of Powder Metallurgy is a comprehensive, easy-to-use desk reference, which can be consulted endlessly for quick and authoritative answers - an essential resource for manufacturers, specifiers, end-users and research workers of powdered metals. Metal Powders are being used with increasing frequency in the manufacture of diverse objects, such as watch-cases and piston connecting-rods.
This is the first book to bring together the fundamentals of microwaves, microwave heating, interaction of microwaves with metals, and its application to other materials. The authors have combined numerous research results from a wide range of sources alongside their own work in the field. Also included are overviews of microwave heating of other non-metal materials and the equipment used for microwave-assisted metallurgy. With microwave techniques poised for widespread adoption, Microwaves and Metals is an essential text for all metallurgists and materials engineers.
The definitive overview of the science and metallurgy of aluminum, magnesium, titanium and beryllium alloys, this is the only book available covering the background materials science, properties, manufacturing processes and applications of these key engineering metals in a single accessible volume.
Casting is one of the most important processes in materials technology. In this unique book, each step in the casting and solidification process is described and models are set up, which in many cases can be approximated by simplified analytical expressions. All casting methods are featured, including component casting, ingot casting and continuous casting.
hot Peening: Techniques and Applications covers aspects such as the techniques, equipment and origins of shot peening, problems faced during shot peening and the applications of shot peening.
Proceedings of a symposium sponsored by The Metallurgy and Materials Society of CIM and the Hydrometallurgy and Electrometallurgy Committee of the Extraction and Processing Division of TMS (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society)
Magnesium and magnesium alloys provide a wealth of valuable properties, making them of great interest for use across a wide range of fields. This has resulted in extensive research focused on understanding the properties of magnesium and how these can be controlled during processing. Fundamentals of magnesium alloy metallurgy offers an authoritative overview of all aspects of magnesium alloy metallurgy, including physical metallurgy, deformation, corrosion and applications.
