9780340632079: Light Alloys: Metallurgy of the Light Metals, Third Edition (Metallurgy and Materials Science Series)

This highly successful text has been thoroughly revised to provide an up-to-date overview of the essential features of the metallurgy of aluminium, magnesium and titanium alloys. The emphasis remains on manufacturing processes and applications - areas in which there have been significant advances in recent years. The extraction of each metal is considered briefly, followed by its casting characteristics and alloying behaviour. Sections on heat treatment properties, fabrication and major applications have been expanded to give a more comprehensive coverage of the subject. Particular attention is paid to microstructure/property relationships and the role of the individual alloying elements.

This succint and informative introduction to the physical metallurgy of light alloys will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in metallurgy, materials, manufacturing and mechanical engineering. It will also prove invaluable to metallurgists and engineers in industry seeking to expand on their knowledge.

* The definitive overview.
* Succinct and informative.
* Well illustrated.
