Modern Machine Shops Guide to Engineering Materials
This comprehensive reference, based on information extracted from Modern Machine Shop?s Handbook for the Metalworking Industries, contains almost 400 large, easy to read pages of text, tables, and diagrams that provide the properties and characteristics of a broad range of both metallic and nonmetallic materials, complete with detailed descriptions of heat treatment procedures and testing methods. In addition to covering conventional metals such as steel, aluminum, and copper, extensive data on plastics, fiber reinforced composites, specialized magnesium and titanium alloys, and heat-resistant ?superalloys? are included. Every effort has been made to present current, useful, and practical knowledge that an engineer, designer, or machinist traditionally consults in order to predict a material?s suitability for a particular application.
