Metallography of Steels: Interpretation of Structure and the Effects of Processing

Published: 2018
Authors: Hubertus Colpaert

This book is a combination of a metallographic atlas for steels and cast irons and an introductory textbook covering the fundamentals of phase transformations and heat treatment of these materials. Every important stage of processing, from casting to cold working is clearly discussed and copiously illustrated with metallographs that show the obtained structures, both desired and those achieved when deviations occur. A valuable companion even for experienced steel practitioners.

Understanding Thermoplastic Elastomers

Published: July 20, 2017
Authors: G. Holden

The use of thermoplastic elastomers has significantly increased since they were first produced about 35 years ago. Their worldwide annual consumption was estimated to be about 1,000,000 metric tons/year in 1995 and this number is expected to rise to approximately 1,400,000 metric tons/year in 2000.
