Engineering Materials - Crowood Metalworking Guides
|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

" Screwcutting: I thought I knew a little about Threading. However upon opening the book you cannot help but be impressed with the content, layout and illustration. The subject is covered in much detail but it is not heavy going; the pictures and methods expressed are easy to follow for me at least with some experience. I do feel however if someone who does not have any working knowledge but an aptitude for hand work were to buy it they too would produce an equally good result. Where I lack experience is in Screwcutting and the information really came into its own here. The surprise came toward the back of the book as not only has it covered just about every method of applying a thread it offers twelve pages of data and thirty four pages of well illustrated and described interesting Projects. Recommended reading IMHO. Crowood are mining a rich seam here with their series of metalworking books I have four of them to date. No connection with an author or Crowood. "
