Fire Resistance of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys & Measuring the Effects of Fire Exposure on the Properties of Aluminum Alloys

Fire Resistance of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys & Measuring the Effects of Fire Exposure on the Properties of Aluminum Alloys

Author: J. Gilbert Kaufman Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

This book contains valuable information about the fire resistance of aluminum and aluminum alloys including what occurs when aluminum is in a fire and how the effects of fire damage are evaluated. All aspects of aluminum's fire resistance are described, and reliable methods to estimate the extent of damage resulting from exposure to fire are presented, most notably the relationship between hardness and electrical conductivity with strength. The broad usage of aluminum alloys in major applications such as automotive, oil rigs, naval vessels, and building structures is also reviewed. The information in this book can enable engineers and designers to take account of aluminum's characteristic high resistance to burning while recognizing its relatively low melting point. Extensive appendices include tensile properties of representative aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures, physical properties representative of aluminum and aluminum alloys, representative fire test reports for aluminum alloys, and fire protection of aluminum alloys structural shapes.

Fundamentals of Hydroforming

Fundamentals of Hydroforming

Author: Harjinder Singh Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

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.

Heat Treater's Guide Practices and Procedures for Nonferrous Alloys

Heat Treater's Guide Practices and Procedures for Nonferrous Alloys

Author: Harry Chandler Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

The material is contained in more than 500 datasheet articles, each devoted exclusively to one particular alloy, a proven format first used in the complementary guide for irons and steels. For even more convenience, the datasheets are arranged by alloy groups: nickel, aluminum, copper, magnesium, titanium, zinc and superalloys. The book provides very worthwhile and practical information in such areas as: compositions, trade names, common names, specifications (both U.S. and foreign), available products forms, typical applications, and properties (mechanical, fabricating, and selected others). This comprehensive resource also covers the more uncommon alloys by groups in the same datasheet format. Included are: refractory metals and alloys (molybdenum, tungsten, niobium, tantalum), beryllium copper alloys, cast and P/M titanium parts, P/M aluminum parts, lead and lead alloys, tin-rich alloys, and sintering copper-base materials (copper-tin, bronze, brass, nickel silvers).

Advanced High-Strength Steels Science, Technology and Applications

Advanced High-Strength Steels Science, Technology and Applications

Author: Mahmoud Y. Demeri Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

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.

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Author: Mel Schwartz Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

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.

SME Mineral Processing & Extractive Metallurgy Handbook, 2 Volumes

Transformations Selected Works of G.B. Olson on Materials, Microstructure, and Design

Author: C. E. Campbell Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/03/2020

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. This collection highlights his influential contributions to the understanding of martensite transformations and the development and application of a systems design approach to materials. Part I: Martensite, with an Introduction by Sir Harry Bhadeshia, emphasizes Dr. Olson's work to develop a dislocation theory for martensite transformations, to improve the understanding of the statistical nature of martensite nucleation, and to expand use of quantitative microscopy to characterize phase transformations. 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.
