Milling Dynamics

Milling Dynamics

Author: Han Ding Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2021

This book introduces the fundamentals of milling dynamics, including its modeling, analysis, and applications. Bridging the gap between applied mechanics and manufacturing engineering, it delivers in-depth dynamics-based knowledge through easily readable and understandable examples and through the use of theoretical formulations, numerical analysis, and illustrative applications. In addition to its use as a textbook for first-year graduate students, it provides a useful reference book for experienced practitioners and researchers in manufacturing engineering and related fields.

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering: For Aerospace, Structural and Biomedical Applications, Second Edition embraces new advancements in materials, systems and applications introduced since the first edition. Readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic properties of SMAs and their characteristic state diagrams. Sections address modeling and design process aspects, explore recent applications, and discuss research activities aimed at making new devices for innovative implementations. The book discusses both the potential of these fascinating materials, their limitations in everyday life, and tactics on how to overcome some limitations in order to achieve proper design of useful SMA mechanisms.

Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring

Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring

Author: Lietai (Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), USA) Yang Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/11/2020

Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring, Second Edition, reviews electrochemical techniques for corrosion monitoring, such as polarization techniques, potentiometric methods, electrochemical noise and harmonic analyses, galvanic sensors, differential flow through cells and multielectrode systems. Other sections analyze the physical or chemical methods of corrosion monitoring, including gravimetric, radioactive tracer, hydrogen permeation, electrical resistance and rotating cage techniques, and examine corrosion monitoring in special environments such as microbial systems, concrete and soil, and remote monitoring and model predictions. A final group of chapters case studies covering ways in which corrosion monitoring can be applied to engine exhaust systems, cooling water systems, and more. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, this book is a valuable reference guide for engineers and scientific and technical personnel who deal with corrosion in such areas as automotive engineering, power generation, water suppliers and the petrochemical industry.

Metallographic Etching

Metallographic Etching

Author: G. Petzow Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/10/2020

This book is an outstanding source of etchants of all types, and electrolytic polishing solutions used by metallographers to reveal the structures of nearly any material ever prepared and examined. The introductory text on specimen preparation and theory of etching has been expanded and updated to cover all common procedures as well as some specialized methods. Also included is new information on safety. The new edition has been considerably expanded, with more than twice the content of the previous English edition of this atlas of etching techniques for metals, ceramics, and polymers. The chapter on metallography covers new developments in the metallic groups and the novel material combinations that are used in many fields of high technology.

ASM Handbook, Volume 1A

ASM Handbook, Volume 1A

Author: Doug M. Stefanescu Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/10/2020

Cast iron development engineers, foundry production and support personnel, product-application engineers, and designers now have an ASM Handbook (R) devoted to the principles, practices, and application of cast iron science and technology. Up-to-date content covers all aspects of cast iron fundamentals and metallurgy, primary and secondary processing, effects of processing on properties, process, and product design, and the engineering properties of specific grades, types, and product forms of iron castings. With emphasis on both the science and applied technology of cast irons, this new ASM Handbook provides specific coverage of many important aspects of cast iron production, analysis, and use. The science of cast iron provides an important foundation on many modern techniques addressed in this new volume, including coverage on computational modeling, computer-aided prediction, and methods of analysis and testing. Also included are articles devoted to important process design factors such as modification and inoculation, effects of trace elements, filling and feeding systems, and the development of solidification microstructures. ASM Handbook, Volume 1A: Cast Iron Science and Technology is an in-depth and comprehensive reference for those who research, develop, process, make, use, analyze, or specify cast irons. Doru M. Stefanescu, Professor Emeritus from The University of Alabama and The Ohio State University, has gathered an international group of leading innovators, researchers, and practitioners in the cast iron field to create an invaluable reference for both practitioners and researchers.

Advanced High-Strength Steels

Advanced High-Strength Steels

Author: Mahmoud Y. Demeri Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/10/2020

Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) are the fastest growing material in today's automotive industry and are designed to leverage steel as the optimum automotive material. This book provides a comprehensive account of the structure-property relationship in AHSS. It examines the types, microstructures and attributes of AHSS. It also reviews the current and future applications, the benefits, trends, and environmental and sustainability issues. A compelling feature of the book is its extensive use of property charts and microstructures to simplify visualisation of the resulting attributes of AHSS. This book is intended to be a textbook/reference.
