Beryllium Chemistry and Processing
Beryllium Chemistry and Processing provides detailed reference information on the chemical and physical metallurgy of beryllium and its use as an engineering material. It covers everything from mineral extraction to recycling, including beneficiation, analytical chemistry, primary metal production, alloying, casting, forming, machining, plating, coating, welding, and powder metallurgy. It explains how composition, deformation, and heating affect the mechanical and physical properties of beryllium alloys as well as their behavior in corrosive and high-temperature environments. It describes phases and phase transformations, the influence of intermetallic compounds, and how to identify phase constituents using basic metallographic techniques. It also addresses issues such as occupational health and safety, storage and transportation, sourcing, and quality control, and discusses typical applications and uses.
