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.
This book is written for engineers, scientists, teachers, and students engaged in the design process of material selection and material elimination. While focused on mechanical properties for structural design, the physical properties that are germane to corrosion behavior and electrical applications are represented. Datasheets for individual magnesium alloys provide a handy quick reference to specific properties and performance. Topics such as the alloy designation system and product forms are addressed.
Authors: Daniel H. Herring
Volume II covers new topics and expands on those already discussed in Volume I, making this two-volume series the comprehensive resource on the subject of vacuum heat treatment. This book provides readers with a wide range of useful information both from a practical and technical standpoint on the subject. Readers will be able to make better and more informed decisions about their equipment, process, and service needs.
Authors: Jonathan Dantzig, Michel Rappaz
Since the 1980s, numerous fundamental developments in the understanding of solidification processes and microstructure formation have come from both analytical theories and the application of computational techniques using commonly available powerful computers. This book integrates these developments in a comprehensive volume that also presents and places them in the context of more classical theories.
Authors: Raymond G. Bayer
A modern presentation of approaches to wear design, this significantly revised and expanded second edition offers methods suited for meeting specific wear performance requirements, numerous design studies highlighting strategies for use with different tribological elements and mechanical systems, proven tactics for resolving wear-related problems, and a plethora of real-world case studies.
Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability
Authors: Neville W. Sachs
Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. With the right guidance, you don't have to be an authority in all of these areas to become skilled at diagnosing and preventing failures. Based on the author's more than thirty years of experience, Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability is a down-to-earth guide to improving machinery maintenance and reliability.
ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have collaborated to present a collection of the selected works of Dr. Greg B. Olson in honor of his 70th birthday in 2017.
The original contributors to the second edition of Casting Copper-Base Alloys felt that it was time to update several key chapters and also add a new chapter (Copper Alloys for Special Applications) that deals with the issues that impact the copper industry in the future, specifically copper's antimicrobial properties. Thus, the third edition of the Casting Copper-Base Alloys was published.
A practical guide to help engineers and designers select the best possible surface treatments for corrosion and wear control.
