New applications are crucial for the advancement of the aerospace, automotive, sports and medical sectors. Vital research is being carried for future developments and titanium represents an area in which significant investment has been made.
Titanium alloys: Modelling of microstructure, properties and applications from Woodhead Publishing is the first book of its kind dedicated to modelling techniques for titanium. Modelling techniques for both titanium alloys and titanium aluminides are discussed as well as an examination of experimental techniques such as microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry and dislocations relevant to TiAI.
Physical models are reviewed with chapters detailing thermodynamic modelling and the Johnson-Mehl-Avrami method adapted to continuous cooling. A summary of neural network method, models and applications is strengthened with the inclusion of both time-temperature-transformation and fatigue stress life diagrams. This comprehensive new book concludes with an examination of surface engineering products with particular focus on surface gas nitriding including phase composition, microstructure, mechanical properties and corrosion.
With its distinguished authors, Titanium alloys: Modelling of microstructure, properties and applications is a standard reference for industry and researchers concerned with titanium modelling, as well as users of titanium, titanium alloys and titanium aluminide in the aerospace, automotive, sports and medical implant sectors.
