PREFACE Invention is often born of the need, or just the desire, to improve something. This simple statement (a restatement, in a way, of the old saw ‘‘necessity is the mother of invention’’) is the driving force behind the development of the Handbook of Materials Selection. The audience for this handbook consists of practicing engineers and the people who work with them, all of whom need to determine what materials they might specify, order, and use to make something better, whether it’s a dental implant, an electronic package, an airplane, or a highway overpass. The choices are not always as clear cut, nor are they as straightforward, as they once were. In the past, one material (e.g., steel) or a class of materials (e.g., metals) might have been all an engineer would have needed to consider for a particular application. But now different classes of materials compete for consideration, in order that a manufactured part or assembly be as inexpensive, or as light, or as long-lasting as possible, to name just a few factors that might have to be taken into account. So whereas an engineer might have turned in the past to a single supplier’s materials properties tables to make a selection, now he or she might first turn to the engineer’s most trusted information source—colleagues, whose collective expertise can be brought to bear on an improved materials selection procedure. So an important purpose of a publication such as this handbook is to assemble a collection of experts to provide advice to an engineer. If a handbook is to do this job effectively, its assigned experts should have a wide range of professional experience. They should have worked in a variety of settings. In keeping with this concept, the Handbook of Materials Selection is the product of the efforts of over 50 contributors who have experience in five different environments: a little over 40 percent are from mainly industrial backgrounds; a little under 30 percent are U.S. university faculty members, many with some experience in industry, while another 10 percent are, or have been until recently, on the faculty of academic institutions in Egypt, Israel, Germany, and England; the rest work at U.S. government installations or at research institutes, both private and university affiliated. Whatever their background and experience may be, the contributors to this handbook have written in a style that reflects practical discussion informed by real-world experience. The intent is for readers to feel that they are in the presence of experienced engineers, materials specialists, teachers, researchers, and consultants who are well acquainted with the multiplicity of issues that govern the selection of materials for industrial applications. At the same time, the level is such that students and recent graduates can find the handbook as accessible as experienced engineers. As much as practicable, contributors have employed visual displays, such as tables, charts, and photographs, to illustrate the points they make and the exxii PREFACE amples they draw on. They have discussed current trends in the specification, availability, and use of materials. Also, wherever appropriate, discussion enables readers to look into the near-term future. Nevertheless, no information resource, I mean no handbook, no shelf of books, not even a web site or a portal on the Internet (not yet, at least), can hope to inspire every new product whose successful introduction and long service life are predicated on innovative and adroit materials selection, much less inspire every new version of existing products that is cheaper, lighter, or flashier than its predecessors because of a clever material substitution. Why, then, develop a one-volume Handbook of Materials Selection? The powerful premise driving this 1,500-page handbook is that, in terms of materials selection, what works now, as well as what has failed in the past, can serve as an experiential platform on which practicing engineers can employ the modern multidisciplinary training they now receive. My intention has been to create a practical reference for engineers wanting to explore questions about selecting materials for specific industrial applications. In my view, there are two sets of useful questions worth exploring. One set covers practical examples of the what, why, and how of materials selection: What materials have been used in particular industrial applications? Why were these materials selected? Were the materials processed in special ways? How did material properties relate to performance in service? Were there any problems initially, and did any develop later? What precautions are recommended? What were the key tradeoffs between properties and performance? What were the limitations imposed by the selected materials? A second set of questions relates to a practicing engineer’s particular design situation: What materials might have the characteristics that meet the needs of the application I’m working on? Where would I find information about such materials? What processing techniques might I use to create parts or components from these materials? How do I take into account properties and manufacturing processes in the design process? How would I confirm that the materials I specify and purchase have the properties I’m looking for? How does the organization I’m working for go about supplying the materials required by the design I’m proposing, and what limitations may be imposed on my selection by such factors as cost, environmental degradation, etc.? PREFACE xiii The emphasis in the handbook is on practical issues rather than on basic science, on design and manufacturability issues, on where to find properties information, much of which is now electronic, and on instructive applications and case studies where engineers have taken advantage of distinctive properties offered by different classes of materials. Metals, nonmetallic materials, including plastics and ceramics, and composites get equal coverage, as appropriate. In order to answer such questions as the ones I have posed above, I arranged the contents of the handbook in seven parts. The first part, just one chapter long, but important nonetheless and a good introduction to the field of materials selection, is on quantitative methods that a practitioner can apply to materials selection problems. The second part covers the range of major materials— metallic, nonmetallic, and composite, from the tried and true to the new and novel—that engineers use nowadays to make things. A couple of these chapters deal specifically with the potential problems that practitioners should be aware of when selecting particular materials. The third part of the handbook covers sources of materials data, including a librarian’s advice on finding, as well as evaluating the reliability of, such data, methods for managing the data that an organization has acquired, and how the data are used for procuring materials. Once you’ve obtained a material, what exactly do you have? The fourth part of the handbook deals with the issue of testing—what equipment is used to determine the properties of the different classes of materials, what standards govern test procedures, and what organizations are in the business of providing testing services. What about the life expectancy of the thing you’ve designed and made from the material you selected? Another important factor in materials selection is knowing how different classes of materials fail, which is the subject of the chapters that comprise the fifth part of the handbook. The final aspect of materials selection involves knowing about the manufacturing processes used to make things from available classes of materials, which is the subject of the chapters that make up the sixth part of the handbook. The handbook’s last, and largest, section, which sets it apart from other handbooks in the materials field, includes 11 chapters that deal not only with a broad range of industrial applications, but also with design and assembly issues involved in using composites and plastics, as well as chapters on materials that provide improved wear resistance. The applications chapters cover aerospace, medical, electronic, telecommunications, sports, and construction industries. A few chapters in this handbook, which are not more than a few years old, have been repurposed from the second edition of another Wiley publication that I have developed, the Mechanical Engineers’ Handbook. For the most part, however, the contributions in the Handbook of Materials Selection were cooked to order, so to speak. All of them are miracles, and I am eternally grateful to the busy men and women who took the time and trouble to write them. My thanks to Wiley’s internal and external production personnel for their speed and diligence. They, too, are in the business of making something better. Special thanks to my acquiring editor, Bob Argentieri, who shepherded the project through the corporate labyrinth. Not long after I drove down to Manhattan with the handbook manuscript in file folders in two cartons on the back seat of xiv PREFACE my car, Bob and his wife, Anne, had their third child. She will grow up in a world changed and improved by the materials-selection decisions that engineers make every day. I hope this handbook helps to make some of those decisions the best that they can be. MYER KUTZ Albany,NY

Insufficient knowledge, time limitations, and budget constraints often result in poor material selection and implementation, which can lead to uncertain performance and premature failure of mechanical and electro-mechanical products. Selection of Engineering Materials and Adhesives is a professional guide to choosing the most appropriate materials and adhesives for product development applications from the onset. This text emphasizes material properties and classifications, fabrication and processing considerations, performance objectives, and selection based on specific application requirements, such as frequency of use (duty cycle) and operating environment. Each chapter focuses on a particular material family, covering ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including steels, cast-iron, aluminum, and titanium, as well as plastics such as PVC, acrylics, and nylons. Unique to this book on material selection, the final chapter discusses critical aspects of adhesives, including cure methods and joint configurations. Selection of Engineering Materials and Adhesives presents materials that are most often used for selection processes and applications in product development. This book is an ideal text for senior level undergraduate or graduate courses in mechanical engineering and materials science as well as recent graduates or managers who are tasked with the daunting job of selecting a material for a new application or justifying a long-used material in a specific application. It embodies the author's own experience and lectures on this subject, taught at UCLA Extension, and provides students as well as practicing engineers the tools to systematically select the most appropriate materials and adhesives for their design work.

Selection and Use of Engineering Materials provides an understanding of the basic principles of materials selection as practised in engineering manufacture and design with an overview of established materials usage. Emphasis is placed on identifying service requirements and how materials relate to those requirements, rather than listing materials and describing applications. This edition has been revised throughout and now includes coverage of the use of new materials in engineering, materials for bearings and tribological usage, and the use of materials in civil engineering structures. It has also been expanded to include more case studies and worked examples in order to provide tangible and interactive contact with the content matter. The book also contains a detailed consideration of the weldability of steels, the welding of plastics and adhesion. programmes. An example of this development is the inclusion of a chapter detailing the use of materials in automobile structures; a field in which the traditional use of steel is being displaced as the application of reinforced polymers becomes more widespread. The book also reflects the growing use of computerized databases and materials selection programmes. Core subject area for all engineering and materials degrees Complementary to Materials Selection in Mechanical Design (Ashby) Includes case studies and worked examples

This Databook of engineering properties of ceramics supersedes the Materials Selection Handbook, issued in October, 1963, as RTD-TDR-63-4102 and its two supplements dated May 1964, and April 1965. The materials covered are principally refractory inorganic compounds in the form of monophase crystalline ceramics. Exceptions are the coverage of selected refractory composite materials and intermetallic compounds, as well as metalloid elements of boron, silicon, and germanium. Excluded are glasses, carbons, graphites, and compounds melting below about 2000 F (1200 C). Properties given are those pertinent to structural engineering. The data are in a format designed to permit comparison and selection of materials as well as to provide details on each specific material. Discussions of factors affecting property values and structural application of brittle materials also are included.
