A comprehensive guide to engineering materials used in the workshop, for processes such as milling, welding, and lathe and bench-work. Designed for the general enthusiast or amateur engineer, Engineering Materials provides in-depth information on the functions and limitations of commonly used metals, and valuable advice on material selection.

With detailed diagrams and photographs throughout, the book covers:

  • A history of engineering materials, and the forming and behaviour of a range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals
  • Authoritative advice on material selection for practical heat treatments, joining and other processes in the workshop
  • The practical application of materials in engineering and case studies on steam locomotive boilers, model aero engines and classic two-stroke motorcycle engines
  • A review of the micro-structures and performance of familiar metals in critical applications, including fast fracture and fatigue, illustrated by a re-evaluation of some well-known dramatic engineering failures
