Characterization and Failure Analysis of Plastics

2003-12-01
The selection and application of engineered materials is an integrated process that requires an understanding of the interaction between materials properties, manufacturing characteristics, design considerations, and the total life cycle of the product. This reference book on engineering plastics provides practical and comprehensive coverage on how the performance of plastics is characterized during design, property testing, and failure analysis. The fundamental structure and properties of plastics are reviewed for and information describes the important design factors, properties, and failure mechanisms of plastics. The effects of composition, processing, and structure are detailed on the physical, chemical, thermal, and mechanical properties. Also covered are failure mechanisms such as: crazing and fracture; impact loading; fatigue failure; wear failures, moisture related failure; organic chemical related failure; photolytic degradation; and microbial degradation.

Corrosion of Weldments

2006-12-01
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.

Fatigue and Durability of Metals at High Temperatures

2009-07-01
From concept to application, Fatigue and Durability of Metals at High Temperatures describes the method of strain-range partitioning for analyzing time-dependent fatigue. Creep (time-dependent) deformation is first introduced for monotonic and cyclic loading. Multiple chapters then discuss strain-range partitioning in details for multi-axial loading conditions and how different loading permutations can lead to different micro-mechanistic effects. The total-strain method of strain-range partitioning (SRP) is described, which is a methodology that sees use in several industries.

So You Want to Design Aircraft: Manufacturing with Composites

2018-05-30
The market for aerospace composites is projected to reach $42.97 billion by 2022, up from $26.87 billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 9.85% from 2017 to 2022. Clearly, the use of aerospace composites in commercial aircraft has gained momentum during the past few decades, but there is still much room for growth and much more to learn. Lightweighting is generally considered to be the main driver for the increased and pervasive use of composites. However, beyond the contribution toward fuel efficiencies, composites also offer increased resistance against corrosion and part count reduction. Those corrosion characteristics, as well as fatigue properties, lead to lower maintenance costs over aircraft and components manufactured using traditional materials. Commercial aircraft are complex, sophisticated engineering marvels. And while introducing composites into new programs has added many benefits, it has also added complexity. This book aims to help manage and mitigate that complexity.
