Book Description

Providing an analytical approach to selecting the best metal and obtaining optimal properties for and in a fabricated part, this text correlates weldability, formability and machinability with a metal's chemical composition through microstructures. It begins with a review of the principles of materials science and offers useful features, such as end-of-chapter problems and a solutions manual.

Table of Contents

Materials and manufacturing considerations in product design; the structure of solids; equilibrium phase diagrams; microconstituent diagrams and microstructures; non-equilibrium diagrams and microconstituents; thermal strengthening and costs; mechanical properties; deformation strengthening and formability strength of weldments; machinability of metals. Appendices: conversion factors - US common to SI units; physical properties of some metals; cold work; properties of aluminum; AISI steels; prices; descriptions of the common forming operations; the machining operations.
