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

1999-01-01
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.

Factory Man

2009-02-16
Factory Man is about James Harbour and the epic struggle of the U.S. auto industry to catch up to Japan in quality and productivity. Harbour is a former manufacturing executive who, partly by chance, became the first U.S. expert to study Toyota's operations in Japan. Harbour's consulting firm, Harbour & Associates has gained worldwide recognition for its annual public studies of factory productivity. The Harbour Report is the essential annual scorecard of who is winning the productivity race in the U.S. In 1981, Harbour reported that Toyota could offer a small car for sale in the U.S. at a production cost of $1,500-$1,700 less than the Detroit automakers at that time, a cost advantage of about 30 percent. The impact on Detroit was atomic, and launched the painful, historic effort by the Big Three to catch up, which continues today. James Harbour's story, blunt and accessible, includes a detailed description of how Detroit went astray, beginning right after World War II.

Biofuels: Illusion or Reality?

2008-09-01
Environmental issues, rising prices and security of supply are putting energy at the center of all attention. Policymakers pushed by various stakeholders are struggling to find more sustainable solutions to the world’s legitimate demand for energy. The transport sector is especially under pressure as it relies up to 98% on oil. Despite vast research and development investments, no short-term solutions appeared to be reliable. Thanks to lawmakers’ support to biofuels, these substitutes for oil are now seen as the potential solution for a sustainable future in less polluting transportation alternatives. This book analyses the real possibility of biofuels in Europe. Does the region have enough land to produce the needed feedstock? What are the real gains in terms of greenhouse gases emissions and energy efficiency? Are biofuels really a sustainable solution? Will this policy succeed? Are the targets reachable?

Technology for Magnesium Castings

2011-01-01
The latest casting and processing technologies have raised the importance of magnesium in the transportation industry. As a structural material with low density and a very high strength-to-weight ratio, magnesium can reduce vehicle weight and, in turn, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase fuel economy. This book provides valuable information on: • melt control • process control • casting and solidification • heat treatment • materials selection • various casting processes The 18 chapter authors are world-class scientists, professors and engineers with countless years of industrial and laboratory experience. Each chapter was also reviewed by qualified metallurgists/materials engineers from the metalcasting industry, academia and research laboratories to ensure that only the highest quality information was accepted for publication.

Surface Treatments and Characterization of Electroplated and Hot Dip Galvanized Steel Sheets

1996-04-01
91A126
Protection of surfaces is a critical factor in determining the extended service life of a structure in polluted and aggressive environments. In particular, a rapid growth of the technology for the protecting coating of cold rolled steel is experienced, for the use in transport, electric housewares, building and industrial plants. Numerous changes have taken place in the production of zinc coatings on steel in order to improve the corrosion resistance using zinc alloy platings. Our research group collected from the international production a number of selected galvanized steel samples, including electrodeposited zinc alloys, multilayer coatings, hot dip galvanized steels. On the selected materials we established and analyzed morphology, composition, crystal structure, impurity content and distribution, using many surface microanalysis techniques.

The Modeling of Mold Filling in Structural Reaction Injection Molding

1996-04-01
91A118
The main use of FRC in automobiles, with the exception of a few specialized low volume vehicles, has been until now in semistructural parts. One of the most promising process in development today, that may play major role in future structural composite fabrication, is based on SRIM technology. The rapid and extensive introduction of this process goes also through the development of deeper theoretical knowledge of the process and the development of computer simulation to aid mold design and choice of proper processing parameters. To contribute SRIM advancement, a preliminary model has been developed for viscosity changes, extent of the reaction and temperature rises, associated with the mold filling stage, as well as a simple software to evaluate the pressure drop through different combinations of reinforcements.

Simulors, An Innovative Tool for Molds Development

1996-04-01
91A117
Mold designers and foundrymen spend a lot of time in developing molds without knowing exactly the phenomena which take place inside. Simulor, which has been used in an industrial environment for two years, offers the solution to make foundrymen understand what happens during the filling of the mold and the solidification of the part. Based on navier-stokes and heat transfer equations, simulor provides speed distribution and metal front evolution in the cavity and thermal map in the mold and the part. Some examples with different metals (cast iron, aluminum alloy) cast with various processes (sand or die casting, low pressure or gravity casting) will be given. This new tool will given foundrymen the opportunity to test the mold before having it machined and will also allow reduction in development delays.

In order to improve the design of drawn parts and to reduce the number of trial and error tests, Renault has undertaken the development and the validation of various finite element procedures and codes. This paper describes the function of each software and its level of integration into the design process. One of them is already an operational tool used be planners whilst the others are still in the validation phase. Selected examples show typical applications of the computer programs on automotive parts.
