Materials Selection and Design
Volume 20 provides insights on how to improve products and reduce costs by leveraging materials technology in the context of engineering design. It begins with a review of best design practices, identifying roles and responsibilities, workflows and tools, and considerations such as industry standards and codes, environmental regulations, liability, and risk. It then presents a rational approach to materials selection aided by data charts, decision trees, lab tests, and failure analyses. It also describes the effects of composition, processing, and structure on mechanical properties and explains how to leverage the underlying relationships to make products more manufacturable and/or more resistant to corrosion, fatigue, fracture, wear, and other hazards. The volume addresses a range of materials and manufacturing processes and includes reference data. For information on the print version of Volume 20, ISBN: 978-0-87170-386-6, follow this link.
