Book Description

The Handbook of Aluminum: Vol. 1: Physical Metallurgy and Processes covers all aspects of the physical metallurgy, analytical techniques, and processing of aluminium, including hardening, annealing, aging, property prediction, corrosion, residual stress and distortion, welding, casting, forging, molten metal processing, machining, rolling, and extrusion. It also features an extensive, chapter-length consideration of quenching.
