Modeling and Simulation for Material Selection and Mechanical Designby George E. Totten
Synopses & Reviews
This reference describes advanced computer modeling and simulation procedures to predict material properties and component design including mechanical properties, microstructural evolution, and materials behavior and performance. The book illustrates the most effective modeling and simulation technologies relating to surface-engineered compounds, fastener design, quenching and tempering during heat treatment, and residual stresses and distortion during forging, casting, and heat treatment. Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, it enables researchers to enhance engineering processes and reduce production costs in materials and component development.
Book News Annotation:
Engineers and metallurgists from Germany, Canada, Russia, and Japan summarize and demonstrate key numerical relationships used in developing computer modeling and in applying them at various stages in the material production process. They write primarily for designers, mechanical and materials engineers, and metallurgists, but suggest that the collection could be used as a textbook for a graduate or advanced undergraduate engineering course. The six substantial studies consider a mathematical model for predicting microstructural evolution and mechanical properties in hot-rolled steels, designing for the control of residual stress and distortion, designing fastening systems, and other topics.
