No other book provides the details of how to conduct tribotests, including their implications, how to avoid pitfalls, and which are most useful. This manual describes the many manifestations of friction wear and erosion and suggests specific tests that can be used to address problems. It gives guidance in determining if bench tests are appropriate for a problem and if so, which ones should be considered. Manual 56 is an excellent resource for newcomers to tribology and a useful reference for practicing tribologists.

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.

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.

This is an expert overview on the topic of tire recycling. It summarizes current practices and the factors that have contributed to their growth and efficacy as viable, economically and environmentally sound methods of dealing with post-consumer tires. There are around 1 billion tires produced each year across the globe. It is estimated that for every tire sold another joins the waste stream. This publication explores innovative alternatives available to simply disposing of tires. In fact, waste tire products have many desirable properties in key application areas from thermoplastic elastomers to road surfaces. The primary area of study of this report is the EU, but reports from the US have also been cited. Statistics are incorporated from the EU markets, which illustrate changes in the industry since the inception of the European Tire Recycling Association a decade ago.

Increased demand for gears to transmit more power through smaller, lighter, quieter, and more reliable packages that must operate over a wide range of service conditions, has made the design and manufacture of gears much more complex. Gears manufactured from certain steels are found to meet these demands, and become especially effective when heat treated and finish machined for high geometric accuracy. However, distortion of the gear after heat treatment offers the gear engineer a challenging opportunity not only in ensuring a high quality product but also in controlling manufacturing costs. Heat Treatment of Gears is designed to provide the gear design engineer with a better understanding of heat treatment and its effects on gear quality and performance, especially as these considerations are critical to ensuring that the gears perform satisfactorily under anticipated service conditions.
