Examines the behavior and characteristics of metals and materials, as well as the current practices for materials processing being used in the industry today. Taking a visual approach, it uses graphics, drawings, and photographs to illustrate actual equipment, processes and differences in metals when they are subjected to certain conditions such as heating, forming, or forging. Continuing its use of self-tests, case problems and worksheets, this new edition features updated identification and classification of metals; color inserts; expanded coverage of annealing, stress relieving, and normalizing steels; a new chapter on surface hardening treatments for steel products; and a new chapter on hardening processes and tempering steels. A comprehensive coverage of the behavior and characteristics of metals and materialsincluding steel, ceramic materials, wood and paper products, plastics and elastomers and more! Discusses current industry practices regarding how to alter a metal’s properties in order to meet the highest demands of applied materials technology. Presents the application of metallurgy, how metallurgical processes actually work, the welding of various metals, and service problems such as metal fatigue and corrosion. Describes testing methods used to determine material properties for compliance with design specifications. Includes visuals of the equipment used to perform specific ore refinement operations and the numerous processes used to make modern metals and alloys. A reference textbook for readers involved metallurgy, material science, machine tool technology, welding technology and quality control.
