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.

This book provides practicing engineers, researchers, and students with a working knowledge of the fatigue design process and models under multiaxial states of stress and strain. Readers are introduced to the important considerations of multiaxial fatigue that differentiate it from uniaxial fatigue.

Titanium need not be all that hard to weld! In industrial sectors the common opinion is that titanium alloys are difficult to weld. While it is true that titanium alloys can be embrittled by carless welding techniques, it is equally true that these materials are much more weldable than their reputation suggests. This reference guide discusses the difficulties that originate from several basic sources when welding titanium and titanium alloys. The high reactivity of titanium with other materials, poor cleaning of parts before joining, and inadequate protection during welding can lead to contamination, porosity and embrittlement of the completed joints. Topics Covered: • Weld Cleaning • Gas Shield Arc Welding Processes • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding • Gas Metal Arc Welding • Plasma Arc Welding • Other Welding Processes

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.

Technicians, laboratory personnel, designers, purchasers and sales people agree - if you work for a metals-related company, you need this basic reference for the non-metallurgist. It's written for beginners as well as those who need to refresh their understanding of a particular topic. Well-illustrated and indexed, Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist makes technical subjects easy to understand and provides a complete glossary of metallurgical terms.
Prepared under the auspices of the SAE Fatigue Design and Evaluation Committee. The SAE Fatigue Design Handbook covers, in a single source, current technologies and procedures on all of the major elements of fatigue design. Intended as a handbook for industrial use, this book describes the major elements of the fatigue design process and how those elements must be tied together in a comprehensive product evaluation. Using this handbook will save the design engineer time, while ensuring understanding of the important elements of the fatigue design process.

This guidebook will assist in the design and integration of composite commercial aircraft structures that exhibit improved durability, maintainability and repairability. Written by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Commercial Aircraft Composite Repair Committee (CACRC)/Air Transport Association (ATA)/International Air Transport Association (IATA) Design Task Group for international use by composite aircraft component designers, this book identifies problems that have occurred with various composite components and provides potential problem-solving recommendations. Written primarily for composite design engineers, Design of Durable, Repairable, and Maintainable Aircraft Composites should also prove valuable to those in structural engineering, materials and processing, product support, advanced product development, systems engineering, technical services, and maintenance operations.

Packed with information on the servicing and retrofitting of air-conditioning refrigerant systems so that shops and technicians can meet federal regulations, satisfy customers, and prevent damage to the environment. The second edition of the Automotive Air-Conditioning Refrigerant Service Guide was written to provide the latest information to automotive air-conditioning service professionals in order to help them comply with federal certification requirements and prevent damage to the environment. With an emphasis on proper recovery and recycling techniques for both R-12 and R-134a, as well as the proper retrofitting of R-12 systems to R-134a, the book will serve as a valuable instructional tool and resource for technicians.

This book provides clearly-written, easy-to-understand definitions for over 4,500 terms. In addition to covering the more traditional areas of the field, this fourth edition also defines the terminology of the rapidly advancing areas of "small size" mechanical engineering: micromachining and nanotechnology. Nomenclature used in the manufacture of composites has also been added. Extensively cross-referenced, the Dictionary is an indispensable desk reference for mechanical engineers worldwide. Co-published by SAE and Butterworth-Heinemann.

A Glossary of Corrosion-Related Terms Used in Science and Industry features definitions for over 4,000 specialized terms related to corrosion and corrosion prevention/control. Its coverage encompasses not only the fundamental terms commonly used in corrosion science, but also lesser-known, industry-specific jargon. The Glossary contains terms relevant to the study, effect, and control of corrosion that pertain to chemistry/electro-chemistry, metallurgy, plastics, paints/coatings, metal finishing, and the environment. Various synonyms, acronyms, and abbreviations are also included. A practical desk reference for students, scientists, engineers, technicians, and manufacturing and maintenance personnel. About the author. . . Currently a consultant on corrosion and corrosion protection matters, Mark Vukasovich has over 35 years of experience in industrial research and product/process development.

This book provides a methodology for integrating materials selection with the design process, including simultaneous technical and economic evaluation. Save hours of frustrating research time – this resource provides you with fast answers about the best material for particular applications. In the past, it was nearly impossible to research the endless sources on corrosion and materials, in their countless applications. That’s why this book was written: to help simplify your materials selection problems. Topics include corrosion-resistant materials, types of corrosion, factors affecting corrosion, passivation, corrosion monitoring, corrosion control measures, methodology of materials selection, and more.

It's no secret that lost races and crashes are caused by what is usually referred to as mechanical failure. But author Carroll Smith rightly contends that all failures are human in origin. Poor designs, incorrect manufacture and assembly, unreasonable demands, and negligent maintenance all lead to the dreaded "mechanical failure." Engineer To Win details racing materials technology and many other related subjects. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.
This manual is written as a guide for the designer of leaf spring installations. It contains information which will make it possible to calculate the space required for a leaf spring, to provide suitable attachments, and to determine the elastic and geometric properties of the assembly. The detail design of the spring itself also is described, but it was not the intention of the Committee to lay down fixed rules for this. The choice of leaf lengths, leaf thicknesses, and leaf curvatures depends upon the type of installation and upon the kind of service. Only an experienced spring engineer can make the best choice of these factors. It is therefore recommended that the designer of a leaf spring installation consult a spring maker before the design is finalized.
