A frequently misunderstood technology, die casting is considered the shortest route between raw material and near net shape. For many decades, high pressure die casting was viewed as an art based upon "seat of the pant" strategies. However, many of these crude reactions actually worked because the fundamental process is quite forgiving of eccentricities.... more...

This one-of-a-kind reference examines conventional and advanced methodologies for the quantitative evaluation of properties and characterization of microstructures in metals. It presents methods for uncovering valuable information including precipitate mechanisms, kinetics, stability, crystallographic orientation, the effects of thermo-mechanical processing,... more...

Capitalizing on the rapid growth and reduced costs of laser systems, laser cladding is gaining momentum, and in some instances replacing conventional techniques of depositing thin films because it can accommodate a great variety of materials, achieve uniform thickness and precise widths of layers, and provide improved resistance to wear and corrosion... more...

Magnesium, with a density of 1.74 g/cm, is the lightest structural metal. It is increasingly chosen for weight-critical applications such as in land-based transport systems. This book assembles contributions that cover research programs on alloys with the requisite property profiles, and the state of technological applications of magnesium. more...

The technological field of defects, and more appropriately, avoidance of them, is very current in perhaps all sectors of the manufacturing industry. This is particularly important to reduce/minimize waste everywhere to address lean production procedures. The recent advances in finite plasticity and visioplasticity, damage modelling, instability theories,... more...

Since the life of steel structures is often dominated by environmental degradation or surface corrosion, the structure of the rust formed on iron and steel surfaces is of great interest. Presenting selected examples, this book describes the aspects of materials characterization for the ferric oxyhydroxides formed on steel surfaces. more...
