Stainless Steels for Design Engineers

Stainless Steels for Design Engineers is a technical guide for anyone who designs or builds with stainless steels. Loaded with property data, it is a valuable resource for designers and engineers selecting and specifying stainless steels, and for working with new steel types or on new applications. Contents cover metallurgy, corrosion and oxidation, stainless steel alloys, processing, and applications.

Corrosion of Weldments

Corrosion failures of industrial components are commonly associated with welding. The reasons are many and varied. For example, welding may reduce the resistance to corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking by altering composition and microstructure, modifying mechanical properties, introducing residual stress, and creating physical defects. Corrosion of Weldments details the many forms of weld corrosion and the methods used to minimize weld corrosion. Chapters on specific alloys groups—carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, high-nickel alloys, and nonferrous alloys—describe both general welding characteristics and the metallurgical factors that influence corrosion behavior. Corrosion problems associated with dissimilar metal weldments are also examined. Special challenges caused by high-temperature environments are discussed.

Corrosion: Understanding the Basics

This book presents a practical "how to" approach to understanding and solving the problems of corrosion of structural materials. Although it is written mainly for those having a limited technical background in corrosion, it also provides more experienced engineers with a useful overview of the principles of corrosion and can be used as a general guide for developing a corrosion-control program. This electronic publication includes identification of the various forms of corrosion, critical factors leading to a specific type of corrosion, necessary preventive steps to eliminate or reduce corrosion damage, protective-coating selection, corrosion characteristics of common structural materials, corrosion-testing programs, and failure-analysis procedures.

The Practical Reference Guide for Corrosion of Welds - Causes and Cures

Expert witness and AWS lecturer Ted V. Weber draws upon his lengthy experience as a materials troubleshooter for DuPont to present this succinct introduction to basic corrosion mechanisms. It includes pitting, intergranular corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, erosion, crevice and galvanic corrosion, and selective leaching. Full color digital photos illustrate the costly destruction caused by corrosion in welds. The author offers clear advice on how to avoid and correct corrosion, including alloying for resistance.

Engineering Properties of Magnesium Alloys

Magnesium and magnesium alloys provide unique properties for engineering applications. Magnesium alloys are popular as a structural material because of their combination of light weight and strength. They are desirable for portable tools, appliances, electronic devices, airplanes, space vehicles, and land transportation. This book is written for engineers, scientists, teachers, and students engaged in the design process of material selection and material elimination. While focused on mechanical properties for structural design, the physical properties that are germane to corrosion behavior and electrical applications are represented. Two-thirds of the book is devoted to datasheets for individual alloys which provide a handy quick reference to specific properties and performance. The remainder of the book addresses topics common to all magnesium alloys such as the alloy designation system and product forms. Casting alloys and wrought alloys are compared.

Alloying: Understanding the Basics

This book is a comprehensive guide to the influence of alloy additions on mechanical properties, physical properties, corrosion and chemical behavior, and processing and manufacturing characteristics. The coverage considers “alloying” to include any addition of an element or compound that interacts with a base metal to influence properties. Information addresses the beneficial effects of major alloy additions, inoculants, dopants, grain refiners, and other elements that have been deliberately added to improve performance, as well the detrimental effects of minor elements or residual (tramp) elements included in charge materials or that result from improper melting or refining techniques. The content is presented in a concise, user-friendly format. Numerous figures and tables are provided.

Surface Engineering for Corrosion and Wear Resistance

Engineers are faced with a bewildering array of choices when selecting a surface treatment for a specific corrosion or wear application.

How to Organize and Run a Failure Investigation

Learning the proper steps for organizing a failure investigation ensures success. Failure investigations cross company functional boundaries and are an integral component of any design or manufacturing business operation. Well-organized and professionally conducted investigations are essential for solving manufacturing problems and assisting in redesigns. This book outlines a proven systematic approach to failure investigation. It explains the relationship between various failure sources (corrosion, for example) and the organization and conduct of the investigation. This electronic publication provides a learning platform for engineers from all disciplines: materials, design, manufacturing, quality, and management. The examples in this book focus on the definition of and requirements for a professionally performed failure analysis of a physical object or structure. However, many of the concepts have much greater utility than for investigating the failure of physical objects.
