This full colour 104 page handbook will provide guidelines to generate tensile strain rate test data for ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metals for use in finite element based automotive crash simulation tools. Specifically, measurement of the strength hardening in a sheet material resulting from strain rate testing using a high speed servo hydraulic test machine. Additionally, to provide guidelines to process raw test data, fit material model and format this data for application in crash simulation tools.
This renowned text has provided many thousands of students with an easily accessible introduction to the wide ranging subject area of materials engineering and manufacturing processes for over thirty years. Avoiding the excessive technical jargon and mathematical complexity so often found in textbooks for this subject, and retaining the practical down-to-earth approach for which this book is noted, Materials for Engineers and Technicians is now thoroughly updated and fully in line with current syllabus requirements.
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.
In industrial conditions, surface conditions are highly challenging and surface modification can reduce maintenance and manufacturing costs resulting in improved component performance, reliability and lifetime.
Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on 3D Materials Science, 2012 contains a collection of papers presented at the International Conference on 3D Materials Science, a conference organized by The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), and held in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, July 8-12, 2012.

This book provides design engineers, toolmakers, moulding technicians and production engineers with an in depth guide to the design and manufacture of mould tools that work successfully in production. It highlights the necessity to design a mould tool that allows overall production to make an acceptable profit, and whilst it is recognised that not all design engineers will be able to influence the profitability factor it is an important aspect to consider.
This book discusses and defines the different methods of budgeting, costing and estimating that are normally used within the injection moulding industry. In order to establish the costing system, the operating costs first have to be identified and quantified by means of a budget. Based on the budget, a costing system can then be developed that can be applied to determine the manufacturing cost of each product a company manufactures.
