Edition 2 Their Physical and Mechanical Metallurgy
By Michael V Glazoff, Alexandra Khvan, Vadim S Zolotorevsky, Nikolai A Belov and Alan Dinsdale

Publication Date: 12 Sep 2018

Casting Aluminum Alloys, Second Edition, the follow up to the fall 2007 work on the structure, properties, thermal resistance, corrosion and fatigue of aluminum alloys in industrial manufacturing, discusses findings from the past decade, including sections on new casting alloys, novel casting technologies, and new methods of alloys design. The book also includes other hot topics, such as the implementation of computational technologies for the calculation of phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of alloys, the development of software for calculation of diffusion processes in aluminum alloys, computational modeling of solidification microstructure and texture evolution of multi-component aluminum materials.

In addition to changes in computational predictive abilities, there is a review of novel casting aluminum alloy compositions and properties, as well as descriptions of new casting technologies and updates to coverage on the mechanical properties of aluminum casting alloys.

Key Features

  • Presents a discussion of thermodynamic calculations used for assessing non-equilibrium solidifications of casting aluminum alloys
  • Expands coverage of mathematical models for alloy mechanical properties, helping facilitate the selection of the best prospective candidate for new alloy development
  • Contains a new section that describes the self-consistent evaluation of phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of aluminum alloys
