Aluminum Alloys--contemporary Research and Applications
Asuri K. Vasudevan, Roger Davidge Doherty
Academic Press, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 702 pages
This book discusses the structure and properties of the current and potential aluminum alloys in terms of their structure (and structural transformations by new processing methods) and the relationship between structure and mechanical and other properties. The alternative materials that challenge aluminum are considered as well, since the challenge of new competitive materials is a strong influence on innovation. The book bridges the gap between current scientific understanding and engineering practice. It is an up-to-date reference that will be of use to researchers and advanced students in metallurgy and materials engineering.
