Overview

The Concise Encyclopedia of Materials Processing is a definitive anthology drawn from the Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Technology (EMSAT). The current volume provides information on how materials are transformed from their raw state into useful end products. The text covers articles about casting techniques, deformation processing, crystal growth, heat treatment, machinery and joining procedures, and production and consolidation of powders.

The articles in the present volume are arranged in alphabetical order and present the following features:
• Quality information about the principles of materials processing
• Physico-chemical and mechanical description of materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics and polymers
• Up-to-date information on the processing of a range of materials of engineering importance
• Bridges the divide between engineering academia and professionals
The book provides information about materials processing to engineering and materials science professionals, students, and beginners.

  • A concisepoint of reference for quality information on materials processing
  • Bridges the dividebetweenacademia and professionals
  • Exceptional content for a fraction of the price of Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology
