Friction Stir Welding: Dissimilar Aluminium Alloys

Noor Zaman Khan, Arshad Noor Siddiquee, Zahid Akhtar Khan
August 01, 2017

The evolution of mechanical properties and its characterization is important to the weld quality whose further analysis requires  mechanical property and microstructure correlation. Present book addresses the basic understanding of the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) process that includes effect...

Applied Engineering Failure Analysis: Theory and Practice

Hock-Chye Qua, Ching-Seong Tan, Kok-Cheong Wong, Jee-Hou Ho, Xin Wang, Eng-Hwa Yap, Jong-Boon Ooi, Yee-Shiuan Wong
July 26, 2017

Applied Engineering Failure Analysis: Theory and Practice provides a point of reference for engineering failure analysis (EFA) cases, presenting a compilation of case studies covering a 35-year period, from the 1970s to 2012. This period spans the era from the time when slide rules were used...

Microplasma Sprayed Hydroxyapatite Coatings

Arjun Dey, Anoop Kumar Mukhopadhyay
July 26, 2017

There has been enormous growth in the use of medical implants. However, in the case of hip replacement, loosening of metallic prosthesis fixed with polymethylmethylacrylate bone cement has resulted in painstaking revision surgery, which is a major problem for the patient, surgeon, and biomedical...

Numerical Simulation of Heat Exchangers: Advances in Numerical Heat Transfer Volume V

W. J. Minkowycz, E. M. Sparrow, J.P Abraham, J. M. Gorman
April 17, 2017

This book deals with certain aspects of material science, particularly with the release of thermal energy associated with bond breaking. It clearly establishes the connection between heat transfer rates and product quality. The editors then sharply draw the thermal distinctions between the various...

FRP-Strengthened Metallic Structures

Xiao-Ling Zhao
April 16, 2017

Repairing or strengthening failing metallic structures traditionally involves using bulky and heavy external steel plates that often pose their own problems. The plates are generally prone to corrosion and overall fatigue. Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP), a composite material made of a polymer...

Kinetics in Materials Science and Engineering

Dennis W. Readey
March 29, 2017

"A pedagogical gem…. Professor Readey replaces ‘black-box’ explanations with detailed, insightful derivations. A wealth of practical application examples and exercise problems complement the exhaustive coverage of kinetics for all material classes." –Prof. Rainer Hebert, University of Connecticut...

Applications of EPR and NMR Spectroscopy in Homogeneous Catalysis

Evgenii Talsi, Konstantin Bryliakov
March 28, 2017

This book reviews advances in important and practically relevant homogeneous catalytic transformations, such as single-site olefin polymerizations and chemo- and stereo-selective oxidations. Close attention is paid to the experimental investigation of the active sites of catalytic oxidation systems...
