This practical reference provides thorough and systematic coverage on both basic metallurgy and the practical engineering aspects of metallic material selection and application.  

Coverage includes:

  • Practical information on the engineering properties and applications of steels, cast irons, nonferrous alloys, and metal matrix composites.
  • Concise overviews and practical implications of metallic structure, imperfections, deformation, and phase transformations
  • Process metallurgy of solidification and casting, recovery, recrystallization and grain growth, precipitation hardening
  • Mechanical deformation during processing and in-service properties of fatigue, fracture, and creep.
  • Physical properties and corrosion.
