Taking a practical approach, this work illustrates how design, materials, and process selection must mesh together and be considered along with economic and environmental analysis, when developing a new product or changing an existing model. It also considers the trade-offs that must sometimes be made. This second edition adds and revises topics such as environmental, function, and aesthetic considerations in design; environmental impact assessment of materials and processes; life cycle and recycling economics; and materials substitution. The book begins with an intro that reviews stages of product development. This is followed by three sections covering— · Mechanical failures, environmental degradation, and materials that resist different types of failure · Elements of engineering design and the effect of material properties and manufacturing processes on the design of components · Economic and environmental aspects of materials and manufacturing processes, as well as quantitative and computer-assisted methods for screening, ranking alternatives, and deciding on the optimum material/process combination Examples and detailed case studies illustrating practical applications, as well as materials selection and substitution from a variety of industries, are included. Each chapter begins with clear objectives and ends with a summary, review questions, and bibliography. Appendices supply tables of composition and properties and a glossary of technical terms. SI units are used; with Imperial units given when possible. This student-friendly text demonstrates how to balance design, materials, process selection, and economic and environmental analysis to optimize manufacturing processes for a given component. The author maintains a book website which features PowerPoint presentations for each chapter, and access to a solutions manual for qualifying instructors. Professor Faraq’s book website

Introducing a new engineering product or changing an existing model involves making designs, reaching economic decisions, selecting materials, choosing manufacturing processes, and assessing its environmental impact. These activities are interdependent and should not be performed in isolation from each other. This is because the materials and processes used in making the product can have a large influence on its design, cost, and performance in service. Since the publication of the second edition of this book, changes have occurred in the fields of materials and manufacturing. Industries now place more emphasis on manufacturing products and goods locally, rather than outsourcing. Nanostructured and smart materials appear more frequently in products, composites are used in designing essential parts of civilian airliners, and biodegradable materials are increasingly used instead of traditional plastics. More emphasis is now placed on how products affect the environment, and society is willing to accept more expensive but eco-friendly goods. In addition, there has been a change in the emphasis and the way the subjects of materials and manufacturing are taught within a variety of curricula and courses in higher education. This third edition of the bestselling Materials and Process Selection for Engineering Design has been comprehensively revised and reorganized to reflect these changes. In addition, the presentation has been enhanced and the book includes more real-world case studies.

Vehicle lightweighting is an emerging trend in the automotive industry caused by demands for increased sustainability, lower emissions, and a higher fuel economy. As a result, a wide variety of strategies towards mass reduction have developed. In many cases, these involve the substitution of mild steels, commonly used in automobile bodies, with light structural alloys such as aluminum and magnesium. This technique has been demonstrated to be ineffective, and it has become clear that an innovative approach is necessary to achieve significant lightweighting. One promising method is to completely redesign a vehicle around these lightweight materials. This work studies a concept vehicle, known as the Very Light Car, that employs a radically distinctive design providing significant mass reduction. Novel manufacturing processes capable of producing a Very Light Car in a sustainable, low-cost, and minimal lead time fashion were compared. An outline for an economical manufacturing system was given based on the relative benefits of each process.

Process Planning covers the selection of processes, equipment, tooling and the sequencing of operations required to transform a chosen raw material into a finished product. Initial chapters review materials and processes for manufacturing and are followed by chapters detailing the core activities involved in process planning, from drawing interpretation to preparing the final process plan. The concept of maximising or 'adding value' runs throughout the book and is supported with activities. Designed as a teaching and learning resource, each chapter begins with learning objectives, explores the theory behind process planning, and sets it in a 'real-life' context through the use of case studies and examples. Furthermore, the questions in the book develop the problem-solving skills of the reader. ISO standards are used throughout the book (these are cross-referenced to corresponding British standards). This is a core textbook, aimed at undergraduate students of manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering with manufacturing options and materials science. Features numerous case studies and examples from industry to help provide an easy guide to a complex subject Fills a gap in the market for which there are currently no suitable texts Learning aims and objectives are provided at the beginning of each chapter - a user-friendly method to consolidate learning
