Thermitic Thermodynamics A Computational Survey and Comprehensive Interpretation of Over 800 Combinations of Metals, Metalloids, and Oxides

Thermitic Thermodynamics A Computational Survey and Comprehensive Interpretation of Over 800 Combinations of Metals, Metalloids, and Oxides

Thermites, which are generally considered to be reactive mixtures of powdered metals and metal oxides, are an important subset of energetic materials. The underlying thermodynamic properties of a given mixture dictate whether it may undergo a self-sustaining reaction, liberating heat in the process. Thermodynamic information in the existing scientific literature regarding thermitic combinations is scattered and incomplete. Currently, a comprehensive overview of this nature would be of great use to those working in the areas of pyrotechnics, pyrometallurgy, high-temperature chemistry, and materials science. Thermitic Thermodynamics solves this problem by describing the results of calculations on over 800 combinations of metal, metalloid, and metal oxide reactants. Other features include: A first-of-its-kind adiabatic survey of binary thermitic reactions. Provides an overview of key trends in exothermic metal-metal oxide reactivity. Describes the role of non-oxide product formation in thermitic systems. Explains how to interpret the results of thermochemical calculations effectively. An invaluable resource, this book provides an accessible introduction for students and is also an enduring guide for professionals.

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Author: Mel Schwartz Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/02/2020

This book covers various soldering methods and techniques as well as the latest information on solder alloys, solder films, surface preparation, fluxes and cleaning methods, heating methods, inspection techniques, and quality control and reliability. It is geared toward for scientists, material engineers, designers, manufacturing engineers, and technologists who need practical guidance rather than theoretical instruction. The process of selecting solders has changed. Demanding service environments and rigorous specifications require that the precise details of a soldering process be worked out in advance rather than left to the end. The design of a soldering process has thus become part and parcel of the product design process itself. Other trends have had tremendous effects as well. Notably, environmental concerns have led to a widespread increase in the use of lead-free solders and much innovation in the soldering processes by which they are applied. Moreover, a drive toward miniaturization has led to sweeping changes in soldering forms and processes for electronics assembly. Soldering: Understanding the Basics incorporates up-to-date information on this rapidly changing field-an introduction that assumes some basic knowledge of joining processes but does not demand that the reader wade through pages of mathematical formulae.

Part II: Materials Design, with an Introduction by Dr. Charles Kuehmann, focuses on the application of a systems design approach to materials and the development of integrated computational design curriculum for undergraduate education. Part II includes several examples of the systems design approach to a variety of applications. The papers chosen for this collection were selected by the editors with input from Dr. Olson.

Cold and Hot Forging Fundamentals and Applications

Cold and Hot Forging Fundamentals and Applications

Author: Taylan Altan Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/02/2020

Among all manufacturing processes, forging technology has a special place because it can be used to produce parts of superior mechanical properties with minimum waste of material. Process selection and optimization are important because of the ever-increasing costs of material, energy, and labor. This reference book reviews the fundamentals of forging technology, the principal variables of the forging process and their interactions, and computer-aided techniques such as finite element analysis (FEA) for forging process and tooling design. Topics addressed include the flow behavior of the forged material under processing conditions; die geometry and die materials; friction and lubrication; the mechanics of deformation (strains and stresses); the characteristics of forging equipment; the geometry, tolerances, surface finish and mechanical properties of forgings; and the effects of the process on the environment. A major emphasis is on the latest developments in the design of forging operations and dies, and process modeling using FEA is discussed in all of the relevant chapters. Several chapters of the book have appendices that consist of computer animations showing the results of FEA simulations for various forging operations. The appendices are provided in Microsoft PowerPoint format on the CD-ROM that is included with the book.
