Data included up to 1995 (6-year update to the Second Edition 12-year update to the First Edition). Full 167-page structure-type index (with all its representatives). Entries include full information, as in the Second Edition. Comprises all the international literature from 1913 to 1995. Includes detailed crystallographic data for unary, binary and ternary phases, excluding halides and ternary (or quaternary) oxides. Fully revised and updated. Covers more than 27,000 compounds, with all data critically evaluated. Includes the following improvements over the original Pearson's. Additional literature years between 1989 to 1995 have been covered completely and comprehensively, based on searches of more than 130 journals and more than 10,000 abstract pages per year. Entries contain additional information, such as calculated density, color, more detailed diffraction data, standard deviation of unit cell dimension(s), point-set symmetry, and full reference, including publication title. All entries and structure types have been computer checked for consistency and correctness. All crystallographic data are now given in the standard setting according to the International Tables for Crystallography. Include a Six-Year Update of the Data in The Second Edition.
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.

This book is a readable overview and design guidelines for the increasingly preferred manufacturing process. You can learn how to successfully implement hydroforming, the manufacturing process that brings together low cost, low mass, improved structural performance and improved quality. Fundamentals of Hydroforming covers fundamentals of both tube hydroforming (the most common) and sheet metal hydroforming, with comprehensive guidelines for product design, material selection, computer simulation of the hydroforming process and tool design. It also outlines assembly techniques, considerations of holes and slots, and types of hydroforming equipment.Fundamentals of Hydroforming provides product designers, manufacturing engineers and process engineers a wide range of technical information in one concise, easy to follow source.

This book presents practical information and troubleshooting on laser cutting and laser cutting design tools from a quality manufacturing perspective. Equally applicable to small shops as it is to large fabricator companies, Laser Cutting Guide for Manufacturing is a roadmap for developing, implementing, operating, and maintaining a laser-cutting manufacturing enterprise. The book focuses on metal cutting of sheets, plates, tubes, and 3-D shaped stampings. It presents today's reality of the engineering and business challenges, and opportunities presented by the rapid penetration of laser cutting in all facets of industry.
The History of Stainless Steel provides a fascinating glimpse into a vital material that we may take for granted today. Stainless steel, called the miracle metal and the crowning achievement of metallurgy by the prominent metallurgist Carl Zapffe, is a material marvel with an equally fascinating history of people, places, and technology. As stainless steel nears the hundredth anniversary of its discovery, The History of Stainless Steel by Harold Cobb is a fitting perspective on a vital material of our modern life. Aptly called the miracle metal by the renowned metallurgist Carl Zapffe, stainless steel is not only a metallurgical marvel, but its history provides an equally fascinating story of curiosity, competitive persistence, and entrepreneurial spirit. The History of Stainless Steel is the world's first book that captures the unfolding excitement and innovations of stainless steel pioneers and entrepreneurs. Many new insights are given into the work of famous pioneers like Harry Brearley, Elwood Haynes, and Benno Strauss, including significant technical contributions of lesser known figures like William Krivsky. This fascinating history of stainless steel exemplifies the great push of progress in the 20th Century. From the stainless steel cutlery of Brearley in 1913, stainless steel burst on the modern scene in many tangible ways. Excerpted text by William Van Alen, architect of the Chrysler Building, describes the early architectural use of stainless steel. Another historic application of stainless steel is the revolution in rail travel by the Edward G. Budd Company, which built the first light-weight stainless steel passenger trains-with an astounding 90% reduction in fuel costs. This remains recognized today as one of the technological marvels of the modern world. Harold Cobb, a metallurgist who has spent much of his career in the stainless steel industry, uncovers many interesting stories and insights, including a special perspective on the prominent role of stainless steel in the activities of emerging technical societies such as the American Society for Metals and the American Society for Testing and Materials. Amply illustrated and with a 78-page timeline, this publication truly evokes the inspirations created by and from stainless steel.
