Comprehensive Overview of Production, Properties and Processing of Aluminium

Aluminium is a material of huge importance to the metal manufacturing industry due to both its versatile properties and diverse applications. By examining both aluminium and its alloys from materials selection through to processing, potential uses can be discovered to further exploit this valuable material.

Fundamentals of aluminium metallurgy: Production, processing and applications from Woodhead Publishing provides a comprehensive overview of the production, properties and processing of aluminium, and its applications in manufacturing industries. This broad ranging title considers many issues of central importance in aluminium production and utilization considering quality issues and design for fatigue growth resistance.

A review of production and casting of aluminium and its alloys examines the production of both primary and secondary aluminium from sources of raw materials to energy efficiency. Metallurgical properties of aluminium and its alloys are further explored with particular reference to work hardening and applications of industrial alloys. A concluding section focuses on processing and applications of aluminium examining joining, powder metallurgy and laser sintering as well as application of modern aluminium in aircraft.

With its distinguished editor and team of expert contributors, Fundamentals of aluminium metallurgy: Production, processing and applications is a standard reference for researchers in metallurgy, as well as all those involved in the manufacture and use of aluminium products.
