This practical introduction to engineering materials/metallurgy maintains a low mathematical level designed for two-year technical programs.
The easy-to-read, highly accessible Sixth Edition includes many of the latest industry processes that change the physical and mechanical properties of materials.
This book can be used as a "materials processing" reference handbook in support of Design, Process, Electrical and Chemical technicians and engineers.
An introductory text for materials science and metallurgy courses. Coverage includes extraction from ores, identification, and metallurgic processing, manufacturing, and welding practice, as well as nonferrous metals, adhesives, elastomers, wood and paper products, and failure analysis. Uses a highly visual approach, incorporating b&w graphics, photomicrographs, drawings, and photos of actual shop applications of metallurgy. Includes chapter objectives, review questions, quizes, and case problems. This fifth edition includes new chapters on precious metals, composite materials, and failure analysis. Neely is a retired teacher of machine technology at Lane Community College, and Bertone is a metallurgy instructor at Fullerton Community College. Annotation c.
