Fatigue and Fracture: Understanding the Basics

F.C. Campbell
  • Book
  • B-ASM-042
Published 2012-11-01 by ASM International in United States
This book emphasizes the physical and practical aspects of fatigue and fracture. It covers mechanical properties of materials, differences between ductile and brittle fractures, fracture mechanics, the basics of fatigue, structural joints, high temperature failures, wear, environmentally-induced failures, and steps in the failure analysis process. Separate chapters are devoted to fatigue and fracture of steels, aluminum alloys, titanium and titanium alloys, ceramics, polymers and continuous fiber polymer matrix composites. Topics include: -Introduction to Fatigue and Fracture -Mechanical Behavior -Ductile and Brittle Fracture -Fracture Mechanics -Fatigue of Metals -Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Alloys -Metallic Joints- Mechanically Fastened and Welded -Fracture Control and Damage Tolerance Analysis -Fatigue and Fracture of Ceramics and Polymers -Fatigue and Fracture of Continuous Fiber Polymer Matrix Composites -High Temperature Failures -Wear Failures -Environmentally-Induced Failures -The Failure Analysis Process

  • B-ASM-041
Published 2012-10-01 by ASM International in United States
This book covers the properties, processing, and applications of lightweight materials– aluminum, magnesium, beryllium, titanium, titanium aluminides, engineering plastics, structural ceramics, and composites with polymer, metal, and ceramic matrices. The book begins with a brief history of lightweight materials development during the 20th century, and moves into the basic metallurgy, properties of the available alloys, processing, and applications of each of the lightweight materials. The book's final chapter covers methodologies used in the general materials selection process, specific guidelines for each of the lightweight materials, and the importance of the automotive sector to the lightweight materials industries. Topics include: -Uses of Lightweight Materials - Aluminum Alloys -Magnesium Alloys -Beryllium -Titanium Alloys -Titanium Aluminide Intermetallics -Engineering Plastics -Polymer Matrix Composites -Metal Matrix Composites -Structural Ceramics -Ceramic Matrix Composites -Selection Guidelines for Lightweight Materials This book is intended primarily for technical personnel who want to learn more about lightweight materials. It would be useful to designers, structural engineers, material and process engineers, manufacturing engineers, production personnel, faculty, and students.The book's unique feature is that it provides a…

Joining: Understanding the Basics

F.C. Campbell
  • Book
  • B-ASM-039
Published 2011-11-01 by ASM International in United States
Extending ASM's Understanding the Basics series into fabrication technologies, this book is an introduction to the most important industrial joining methods: welding, brazing, soldering, fastening, and adhesive bonding. It addresses metallurgical issues that must be understood during welding, and provides an overview of issues to consider when joining systems of materials that are the same, similar, or different. Topics include: • Introduction to Joining • Arc Welding of Metals • Resistance Welding • Other Fusion Welding Processes • Metallurgical Variables in Fusion Welding • Solid State Welding and Bonding • Brazing and Soldering • Mechanical Fastening • Adhesive Bonding • Material Issues in Joining

Structural Composite Materials

F.C. Campbell
  • Book
  • B-ASM-031
Published 2010-01-01 by ASM International in United States
This book deals with all aspects of advanced composite materials: what they are, where they are used, how they are made, their properties, how they are designed and analyzed, and how they perform in-service. It covers both continuous and discontinuous fiber composites fabricated from polymer, metal, and ceramic matrices, with an emphasis on continuous fiber polymer matrix composites. A unique feature of this book is that it provides a comprehensive overview of composite materials from an industrial perspective, drawing on the author’s 38 years of industry experience. The book emphasizes practical aspects over theory, and it thoroughly covers the current state of the art.
