Materials Science—Selection of Materials demonstrates how available physical data and knowledge of production methods can be combined at a sufficiently early stage in the design process so as to make a significant contribution toward optimum selection of materials. Topics covered in this book include material properties and material structure to selection criteria; casting technology and powder metallurgy; the economics of forming by machining processes; and factors affecting manufacturing accuracy. This monograph is comprised of 12 chapters and begins by explaining the application of a systematic working plan for materials selection, with emphasis on the use of test data and decision taking. The chapters that follow deal with the basic strength and property problem for metals and how forming methods, with the help of subsequent treatments, can be chosen to satisfy a particular specification. A review of non-metals such as plastics precedes the final chapters that are specifically orientated to bearing materials and lubricants. In order to provide a satisfactory coverage for these transmission components, the influence of design fundamentals on material and process selection is discussed along with alternative design methods. This text will be a valuable resource for students and practitioners in the fields of materials science, physics, chemistry, engineering, and metallurgy.
