The definitive overview of the science and metallurgy of light alloysFrom the Back Cover:
Recent years have seen significant advances in the processing and use of light alloys, in particular in the aeronautical and automotive industries, along with advances in modelling techniques, casting and fabricating technologies and environmental issues. Fully updated to cover all of these developments, the new edition is focused on the needs of both students and professionals working in this field, and is a key resource for both – including those who do not have a metallurgical background.
· Covers the science, properties and applications of widely used engineering alloys in one volume, with new material on processing, heat treatment and characteristics of these essential alloys
· Outlines the latest applications and processes in the automotive, aeronautical and related industries
· Describes new developments with novel materials such as composites, metallic foams, quasi and nanocrystalline alloys
