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.

Book Description Butterworth-Heinemann, 1995. Condition: Acceptable. A heavily used, but still working copy. Coffee stain and wrinkling to the edge of the pages when a tired undergrad fell asleep and knocked their cup over on their books. The binding and pages of the book have been reinforced with tape, has tape and stickers on the cover, as well as lots of notes (some of the answers in the learning activities may be filled in) on the pages. Definitely not pretty, but it's a working copy at a great price that ships fast. ~ Book does NOT contain an access code or CD/DVD. Seller Inventory # #66C-00096
