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: 08/04/2020

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).

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Soldering Understanding the Basics

Author: Mel Schwartz Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/04/2020

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.

More than 192 internationally recognized experts have contributed to the handbook's 128 thought-provoking chapters that examine nearly every aspect of mineral processing and extractive metallurgy. This inclusive reference addresses the magnitude of traditional industry topics and also addresses the new technologies and important cultural and social issues that are important today.

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

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

Author: C. E. Campbell Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/04/2020

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.
