Description

Powder Metallurgy Processing: New Techniques and Analyses covers the application of advanced analytical techniques in metallurgy, mechanics, and economics to the fundamentals of powder fabrication processes. The book discusses powder production by gas and water atomization of liquid metals; the triaxial stress state compaction of powders; and the diffusional homogenization of compacted blends of powders. The text also describes the deformation processing of sintered powder materials; the analysis of mechanical property-structure relations in powder forgings; and the economic risk analysis of a miniplant for production of steel strip from powder. Chemical engineers and metallurgists and students taking related courses will find the book invaluable.
