The Plastic Anisotropy in Single Crystals and Polycrystalline Metalsby Wojciech Truszkowski
Synopses & Reviews
This monograph deals with the plastic anisotropy described by the strain ratio, its physical meaning and technological aspects. The method of precise determination of the instability of crystallographic orientation in deformed imperfect single crystals is presented; it may be considered the essential factor in the analysis of deformation texture in polycrystals. The book is meant to be of help to those engaged in fundamental research and technology of plastic working, suggesting new useful methods and effective procedures.
Book News Annotation:
Though Truszkowski (metallurgy and materials science, Polish Academy of Sciences) has published and discussed research findings by him and his colleagues in papers and conference contributions before, here he compiles them into a single treatment on scientific effects in anisotropy studies. The center of his discussion is the function that defines the anisotropy coefficient varying during the tensile test. He writes for others actively engaged in such research. There is no index.
