Thoroughly rewritten, the second edition is divided into four broad categories: Engineering Materials and their Properties; Metal Casting Processes; Metal Forming Processes; Metal Fabrication Processes. Each process illustrated in the book is accompanied with the relevant practical information such as specifications, operating parameters and design for the process. The process description is also supplemented with simple illustrations, numerical calculations for the process design, and a discussion of the results so obtained. New to this edition : Includes heat treatment of iron castings, copper, copper-base alloys, aluminium base, and magnesium-base alloys; Incorporates continuous casting technique in the chapter on special casting processes; Includes the topic design of extrusion dies; Provides numerous additional numerical examples illustrating various design processes for better understanding and conceptual clarity. A comprehensive text for undergraduate students of Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, and AMIE.
