Hot Working Guide: A Compendium of Processing Maps, Second Edition is a unique source book with flow stress data for hot working, processing maps with metallurgical interpretation and optimum processing conditions for metals, alloys, intermetallics, and metal matrix composites. The use of this book replaces the expensive and time consuming trial and error methods in process design and product development.  In the first edition, which was published by ASM International in 1997, processing maps for 162 materials were presented. Since that time, processing maps for another 130 materials with different initial conditions have been published in the literature which motivated updating of the first edition. In the second edition, significant additions of maps on stainless steels, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys and nickel alloys have been made. In compiling the second edition, stress-strain curves were not included since their shapes do not lead to clear conclusions on the mechanisms. However, the flow stress data are included since they are valuable in formulating constitutive equations required for finite element simulation.  In this book, the available information is compiled in such a way that the processing industry will find it easy to use.

Practicing materials and manufacturing engineers; R&D specialists in industry, universities, and government labs; and graduate students studying the science of mechanical processing and alloy design will find the materials processing data contained in this book invaluable.

Contents: An introductory chapter discusses hot workability, generation of processing maps, the concept of using processing maps in process design and microstructure control, design and manufacturing issues in relation to hot working, and guidelines on the use of processing maps with illustrative examples. Nine subsequent chapters are devoted to materials families including:
• Ferrous Alloys
• Aluminum Alloys
• Copper Alloys
• Magnesium Alloys
• Nickel Alloys
• Titanium Alloys
• Zinc Alloys
• Zirconium Alloys
• Cadmium
• Lead
