Magazine 2013/4

by J G Kaufman

This book presents one of the most complete compendiums of notch-tensile, tear, and fracture toughness data ever compiled. Information and data are included for a wide range of aluminum alloys, tempers, and products (sheet, plate, extrusions, forgings, and castings). Many never-before-published data are included. Typical and minimum plane-stress and plane-strain fracture toughness values are given for many of the high strength alloys for which such values have been generated. The effects of temperature are covered extensively, especially for the notch-tensile and tear data. Fracture data for welds as well as the parent alloys and products also are included. This volume will be helpful for alloy selection and design, and particularly useful in assisting materials specialists and designers in judging the relative toughness of aluminum alloys, tempers, and products being considered for critical applications. All data were thoroughly reviewed by a select committee of the Aluminum Association Inc.
Contents: * Introduction * Definition of terms related to fracture behavior * Tensile properties as indicators of fracture behavior * Notched-bar impact and related tests for toughness * Notch toughness and notch sensitivity * Tear resistance * Fracture toughness * Interrelation of fracture characteristics * Toughness at subzero and elevated temperatures * Crack growth * Metallurgical considerations in fracture resistance * Summary and conclusions * Appendices: notch tensile, tear, and fracture toughness specimen drawings; conversion guidelines Published: 2001

Zeolites and related molecular sieves have quickly become important pathways to new opportunities in the fields of oil processing and petrochemical synthesis. The signs of intense activity in both industry and academia are evident: burgeoning papers and patent applications; increasing numbers of industrial zeolite-based processes and their rapid expansion into organic chemicals manufacturing; recent progress in zeolite accessibility range, matrix behaviour, lattice components and satellite structures; and the recognition that zeolites, which are stable and can be regenerated, may be incorporated into new, environmentally friendly processes.
This volume offers a thorough, up-to-date introduction to zeolites and such related materials as crystalline aluminium phosphates and clays. Its 16 chapters, each written by specialists, provide detailed treatments of zeolite theory (including a review of major developments), zeolite laboratory and research practice, and zeolite industry applications.
Students and individuals entering the field will find Introduction to Zeolite Science and Practice a thorough guidebook. Experienced researchers will appreciate its in-depth coverage of the zeolite spectrum, including the latest views on zeolite structure, characterization and applications.
The standard of the papers is very high, their content is informative, gives not only text-book knowledge, but contains also the newest results of the corresponding fields. Hence, the volume can be used profitably not only by beginners in the branch of zeolite science, but also by experts as a very useful handbook.

An international journal devoted to the science and application of advanced surface treatments for improvement of material properties

Aims & Scope
Surface and Coatings Technology is an international archival journal publishing scientific papers on surface and interface engineering to modify and improve the surface properties of materials for protection in demanding contact conditions or aggressive environments, or for enhanced functional performance. Contributions range from original scientific articles concerned with applied research or direct applications of coatings, to invited reviews of current technology in specific areas. Papers submitted to this journal are expected to be in line with the following aspects in processes, and properties/performance:

A. Processes: Physical and chemical vapour deposition techniques, thermal and plasma spraying, surface modification by directed energy techniques such as ion, electron and laser beams, thermo-chemical treatment, wet chemical and electrochemical processes such as plating, sol-gel coating, anodization, plasma electrolytic oxidation, etc., but excluding painting.

B. Properties/performance: friction performance, wear resistance (e.g., abrasion, erosion, fretting, etc), corrosion and oxidation resistance, thermal protection, diffusion resistance, hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity, and properties relevant to enhanced functional performance for environmental, energy and medical applications, but excluding device aspects.

Articles must go beyond the technical recipe format and gain new understanding and insight based on detailed characterization of coatings and processes. Experimental papers should provide complete information on the process parameters and an appropriate microstructural characterization. Also, papers which include test data should provide full details of the test equipment and parameters. Such papers should report on the synthesis-characterization-properties-performance relationships.
Manuscripts must be written in good English and contain a balanced and up-to-date reference list formatted according to the guide-for-authors.

by Edimet

After the great success of the volume “auto&alluminio”, an absolute novelty in the panorama of international publishing, Edimet is pleased to present the version in the English language titled “aluminium&cars”.
As well as for the Italian version, the volume is illustrated with images, dedicated to the use of aluminium in the auto sector.
The overall viewpoint from which it draws its origins is that of those who decide to use aluminium, preferring it to other materials, for the production of auto components, in which space frames, bodies, suspension systems, wheels and interior décor are prominent. In order to realise this ambitious project, the collaboration of prestigious names in the auto industry was indispensable. They did not hesitate to exploit the technological know-how and commitment of the compartment by highlighting all the qualities of aluminium as a metal.
The volume is divided into chapters which deal with the relationship between light metal and the auto industry in the production of single components, right from the design phase.
The final part, which is of a more purely technical nature, is dedicated to investigations into: aluminium alloys, forming, foundry, joining techniques, surface finishes, test and controls. An extensive bibliography is also included.

Magazine 2013/3



Edited by James M. Boileau

The use of lightweight materials in automotive applications has greatly increased in the past two decades. A need to meet customer demands for vehicle safety, performance and fuel efficiency has accelerated the development, evaluation and em-ployment of new lightweight materi-als and processes.
The 50 SAE Technical papers contained in this publication document the processes, guidelines and physical and mechanical properties that can be applied to the selection and design of lightweight components for automotive applications.
The book begins with an introduction section containing two 1920 papers that examine the use of aluminum in automobiles. Each of the following chapters begins with a historical paper chosen from the early years of SAE; these papers represent the first to discuss the general topic.
Topic areas covered include:
- Design, analysis and modeling
- Wrought aluminum alloys
- Cast aluminum processes and technologies
- Cast aluminum metallurgy and properties
- Case studies
