A comprehensive guide to engineering materials used in the workshop, for processes such as milling, welding, and lathe and bench-work. Designed for the general enthusiast or amateur engineer, Engineering Materials provides in-depth information on the functions and limitations of commonly used metals, and valuable advice on material selection. With detailed diagrams and photographs throughout, the book covers: a history of engineering materials, and the forming and behaviour of a range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals; the practical application of materials in engineering and case studies on steam locomotive boilers, model aero engines and classic two-stroke motorcycle engines; authoritative advice on material selection for practical heat treatments, joining and other processes in the workshop; a review of the micro-structures and performance of familiar metals in critical applications, including fast fracture and fatigue, illustrated by a re-evaluation of some well-known dramatic engineering failures. Superbly illustrated with 144 colour photographs and 82 diagrams.
