Aluminium Rolling: Processes, Principles & Applications

by R. V. Singh

Aluminium Rolling has a very short history of about two centuries. The technology of rolling has matured and stabilized in the last decade or so, with sophistications resulting in higher degree of refi nement and richness of final product. Aluminium Rolling: Processes, Principles & Applications seeks to fill a perceived gap in published information available, which addresses both the theory and practice of aluminium rolling in a comprehensive manner. Although primarily focused on rolling, the book takes a much broader view, covering the entire production processes from ore to finished sheet, plate or foil product. The author uses an analytical approach throughout the book and discusses various important aspects of the subject like Cold Rolling, Hot Rolling, Foil Rolling, Quality Control and Technical Extensions. The book will be useful to industrial professionals in production and marketing of aluminium-finished products. It will also be helpful to the professional institutions and university students who will find a good base to work further in this field.

Iron in Aluminium Alloys: Impurity and Alloying Element (Advances in Metallic Alloys)

by N.A. Belov, A.A. Aksenov, Dmitry G. Eskin

This volume discusses the phase composition and structure of iron-containin alloys, the influence of iron on various properties, the harmful effects of iron as an impurity. It considers the effect of iron on the structure and properties of aluminium alloys and defines ways to diminish this effect. The book also explores the use of iron in the development of new alloys and composites. It presents analyses of equilibrium and non-equilibrium phase diagrams and structure of iron-containing alloys to the development of new alloys and composite materials.

Aluminium Alloy Corrosion of Aircraft Structures: Modelling and Simulation (Wit Transactions on State-Of-The-Art in Science and E ngineer) 1st Edition

byJ.A. DeRose, T. Suter, T. Hack, R.A. Adey

Bringing together the latest research, this book applies new modeling techniques to corrosion issues in aircraft structures. It describes complex numerical models and simulations from the microscale to the macroscale for corrosion of the aluminum (Al) alloys that are typically used for aircraft construction, such as AA2024. The approach is also applicable to a range of other types of structures, such as automobiles and other forms of ground vehicles. […] The corrosion models address pitting and intergranular corrosion (microscale) of Al alloys, crevice corrosion in occluded areas, such as joints (mesoscale), galvanic corrosion of aircraft structural elements (macroscale), as well as, the effect of surface protection methods (anodization, corrosion inhibitor release, clad layer, etc.). The book describes the electrochemical basis for the models, their numerical implementation, and experimental validation and how the corrosion rate of the Al alloys at the various scales is infl uenced by its material properties and the surface protection methods.

Energy and Resource Effi ciency in Aluminium Die Casting (Sustainable Production, Life Cycle Engineering and Management) 1st ed. 2016 Edition

by Tim Heinemann

This monograph provides a field-proven approach to analyze industrial production with a cross-company scope as well as regarding all hierarchical system levels of manufacturing enterprises. The book exemplifies this approach in the context of aluminum die-casting, and presents a set of measures which allow a 30 percent energy reduction along the value chain. The target audience primarily comprises researchers and experts in the field but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Refractories for Aluminium: Electrolysis and the Cast House 2015th Edition

by Andrey Yurkov

This book details the peculiarities of the requirements for refractories designed for aluminium metallurgical process: reduction, cast house, and anode production. The author describes requirements specific to the properties and structure of refractory materials that differentiate it from the refractories for ferrous metallurgy and other refractories. A comparison is drawn between the properties and structure of refractories and carbon cathode materials from different points of view: from the point of physical chemistry and chemistry interactions during the metallurgical process and from the point of design of reduction pots and furnaces with the aspect to the service lifetime of metallurgical aggregates.

Aluminum Dreams: The Making of Light Modernity Hardcover – February 14, 2014

by Mimi Shelle

Aluminum shaped the twentieth century. It enabled high-speed travel and gravity-defying flight. It was the material of a streamlined aesthetic that came to represent modernity. And it became an essential ingredient in industrial and domestic products that ranged from airplanes and cars to designer chairs and artificial Christmas trees. It entered modern homes as packaging, foil, pots and pans and even infiltrated our bodies through food, medicine, and cosmetics.
In Aluminum Dreams, Mimi Sheller describes how the materiality and meaning of aluminum transformed modern life and continues to shape the world today. Aluminum, Sheller tells us, changed mobility and mobilized modern life. It enabled air power, the space age and moon landings. Yet, as Sheller makes clear, aluminum was important not only in
twentieth-century technology, innovation, architecture, and design but also in underpinning global military power, uneven development, and crucial environmental and health concerns.
Sheller describes aluminum’s shiny utopia but also its dark side. The unintended consequences of aluminum’s widespread use include struggles for sovereignty and resource control in Africa, India, and the Caribbean; the unleashing of multinational corporations; and the pollution of the earth through mining and smelting (and the battle to save it).
