Deformation and Processing of Structural Materials

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on


This new study focuses on the latest research in the performance of a wide range of materials used in the construction of structures including concrete, composite materials, timber, iron and steel, aluminum and titanium alloys, superalloys and intermetallics. It considers each materials processing and its deformation behavior in structural applications. This book will help engineers by giving them a better understanding of the performance of the major structural materials (especially metals) under different conditions in order to select the right type of material for a job and for setting design specifications. It also shows how the microstructural composition of materials is affected by processing and what influence this has on its subsequent in situ performance. This book will be the first of its kind to give comprehensive coverage to the deformation and processing of all types of structural materials and will be a valuable resource for researchers in mechanical, civil and structural engineering.
