Comprehensive Materials Processing book cover

Comprehensive Materials Processing

Comprehensive Materials Processing provides students and professionals with a one-stop resource consolidating and enhancing the literature of the materials processing and manufacturing universe. It provides authoritative analysis of all processes, technologies, and techniques for converting industrial materials from a raw state into finished parts or products. Assisting scientists and engineers in the selection, design, and use of materials, whether in the lab or in industry, it matches the adaptive complexity of emergent materials and processing technologies. Extensive traditional article-level academic discussion of core theories and applications is supplemented by applied case studies and advanced multimedia features. Coverage encompasses the general categories of solidification, powder, deposition, and deformation processing, and includes discussion on plant and tool design, analysis and characterization of processing techniques, high-temperatures studies, and the influence of process scale on component characteristics and behavior.


Undergraduate (BEng / BSci), Masters (MEng / MSci), Doctoral (PhD) students within, or faculty leading, research in Industrial engineering, materials science, interdisciplinary research, engineering technology, manufacturing and processing and design-related mechanical engineering, including aeronautical and automotive engineering; process, product and industrial design.
