Alloying: Understanding the Basics
Alloying: Understanding the Basics is a comprehensive guide to the alloying process and the benefits that can be achieved in a wide range of materials, including cast iron, steel, aluminum, titanium, magnesium, copper, nickel, cobalt, and zinc as well as cemented carbides, cermets, and iron-nickel alloys. It explains how alloying influences mechanical and physical properties, corrosion and wear resistance, and processing and manufacturing characteristics. It also discusses the use of inoculants, dopants, and grain refiners and the detrimental effects of residual (tramp) elements that may be present in charge materials or the result of improper melting or refining techniques. The book is well organized and written in a clear and concise manner supported by numerous figures and tables. For information on the print version, ISBN 978-0-87170-744-4, follow this link.
