|PUBLISHED (THIS EDITION):||27/06/2014|
|INSIDE:||144 colour photographs; 82 diagrams|
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
