Elements of Metallurgy and Engineering Alloys provides thorough and systematic coverage on both basic metallurgy and the practical engineering aspects of metallic material selection and application.
- practical information on the engineering properties and applications of steels, cast irons, nonferrous alloys, and metal matrix composites
- concise overviews and practical implications of metallic structure, imperfections, deformation, and phase transformations
- process metallurgy of solidification and casting, recovery, recrystallization and grain growth, precipitation hardening
- mechanical deformation during processing and in-service properties of fatigue, fracture, and creep; and physical properties and corrosion
