- Guides readers through each step of the mechanical alloying process, covering best practice techniques and required equipment
- Tables and graphs explain the stages of the milling processes and describe the properties and characteristics of the resulting materials
- A thorough update of the previous edition, including new chapters covering new applications
This book is a detailed introduction to mechanical alloying, offering guidelines on the necessary equipment and facilities to carry out the process and giving a fundamental background on the reactions taking place. Author M. Sherif El-Eskandarany, a leading authority on mechanical alloying, discusses the mechanism of powder consolidations using different powder compaction processes. A new chapter is also included on thermal, mechanically induced, and electrical discharge-assisted mechanical milling.
Fully updated to cover recent developments in the field, this 2nd Edition also introduces new and emerging applications for mechanical alloying, including the fabrication of carbon nanotubes, surface protective coating, and hydrogen storage technology. El-Eskandarany discusses the latest research into these applications and provides engineers and scientists with information to implement these developments. He also presents the industrial applications of nanocrystalline and metallic glassy powders.
This book contains over 200 tables and graphs to illustrate the milling processes and present the properties and characteristics of the resulting materials.
Metallurgists, Materials Scientists and Engineers, Process and Production Engineers., Design Engineers (especially automotive / aerospace and energy sectors), scientists and engineers involved in relevant specialisms in the fields of advanced materials and nanotechnology.
