Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist (Second Edition)
Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist, Second Edition is an introductory text and reference, covering the principles and practices of metallurgy and their application in product engineering. It discusses the composition, structure, properties, and processing qualities of a wide range of materials, including structural and engineering steels, cast irons, tool steels, high-speed steels, stainless steels, and several nonferrous metals. It explains how to interpret phase diagrams, stress-strain curves, transformation diagrams, microstructure, and fracture surfaces. It describes how metals and alloys respond to melting, casting, forging, forming, rolling, cold working, heat treating, welding, and other processes. It discusses testing methods, including hardness, tensile, fracture toughness, impact, and fatigue testing, the use of metallography, and nondestructive testing and inspection techniques. The book also discusses corrosion and wear and explains how to prevent or mitigate their effects. For information on the print version, ISBN 978-1-61503-821-3, follow this link.
