Computers in Materials Technology presents the computer applications in materials technology. It discusses the materials selection in computer data banks of metals and polymers. This book is divided into six sections that address the alloy and composite materials design. This book deals first with the computerized control of alloy steel making and heat treatment; computer-based models for quenching; calculation of carbon and nitrogen profile in carburizing and carbonitriding; digital image analysis in quantitative metallography; and derivation of stereological relationships by computer synthesis of microstructure. Other sections consider the computer-operated methods of calculating phase equilibria and the computer aided modelling of volume fraction determination. These topics are followed by discussions of computer-controlled system for constant amplitude fatigue testing and the calculation of the transformation behavior of steel. The final chapter looks into the necessity of computer computation in the fiber composites application. The book can provide useful information to engineers, scientists, students, and researchers.
