This book is a comprehensive guide to the influence of alloy additions on mechanical properties, physical properties, corrosion and chemical behavior, and processing and manufacturing characteristics. The coverage considers “alloying” to include any addition of an element or compound that interacts with a base metal to influence properties. Information addresses the beneficial effects of major alloy additions, inoculants, dopants, grain refiners, and other elements that have been deliberately added to improve performance, as well the detrimental effects of minor elements or residual (tramp) elements included in charge materials or that result from improper melting or refining techniques. The content is presented in a concise, user-friendly format. Numerous figures and tables are provided.

Fracture Resistance of Aluminum Alloys presents one of the most complete compendiums of notch-tensile, tear, and fracture toughness data ever compiled. Information and data are included for a wide range of aluminum alloys, tempers, and products (sheet, plate, extrusions, forgings, and castings). Typical and minimum plane-stress and plane-strain fracture toughness values are given for many high strength alloys. The effects of temperature are covered extensively, especially for the notch-tensile and tear data. Fracture data for welds as well as the parent alloys and products also are included.

Otto Lilenthal
Scientists and aviation enthusiasts from around the world will find this one of the most important books ever published. It's the work of the German aviation pioneer and creative genius, Otto Lilienthal, whose observation, analysis, ingenuity and daring laid the foundation for the development of aviation. The "Flying Man" Lilienthal was the first man to launch himself into the air, fly, and land safely. First published in 1891, this new edition is an unabridged copy of the original complete with Lilienthal's own diagrams and formulae, and a preface written in 1911 by A.W. Isenthal, who translated the original into English after Lilienthal's death. After a comprehensive scientific study of how birds fly, Lilienthal recognized the superiority of curved wing surfaces. He then developed a theory of flight and designed and built a series of gliders. From 1891 to 1896 he made over 2,000 glides-bridging the gap between those who dreamed of flying and those who flew.

Increased demand for gears to transmit more power through smaller, lighter, quieter, and more reliable packages that must operate over a wide range of service conditions, has made the design and manufacture of gears much more complex. Gears manufactured from certain steels are found to meet these demands, and become especially effective when heat treated and finish machined for high geometric accuracy. However, distortion of the gear after heat treatment offers the gear engineer a challenging opportunity not only in ensuring a high quality product but also in controlling manufacturing costs. Heat Treatment of Gears is designed to provide the gear design engineer with a better understanding of heat treatment and its effects on gear quality and performance, especially as these considerations are critical to ensuring that the gears perform satisfactorily under anticipated service conditions.

Since aluminum alloys offer an excellent combination of light weight, high-strength, great corrosion resistance and reasonable cost, they have become one of the most commonly used metal groups today. This electronic publication addresses the need for basic information on aluminum alloys and their tempers. The author provides the reader with an understanding of the advantages and limitations of aluminum alloys and temper combinations in terms of the relationship of their composition, process history, and microstructure to service requirements. The temper designation of an aluminum alloy provides the user with background information as to how the alloy has been produced in order to obtain specific and desired properties and characteristics.

This book presents a practical "how to" approach to understanding and solving the problems of corrosion of structural materials. Although it is written mainly for those having a limited technical background in corrosion, it also provides more experienced engineers with a useful overview of the principles of corrosion and can be used as a general guide for developing a corrosion-control program. This electronic publication includes identification of the various forms of corrosion, critical factors leading to a specific type of corrosion, necessary preventive steps to eliminate or reduce corrosion damage, protective-coating selection, corrosion characteristics of common structural materials, corrosion-testing programs, and failure-analysis procedures.
