Innovations in Everyday Engineering Materials (Paperback)

Innovations in Everyday Engineering Materials By T. Debroy, H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia Cover Image


This book provides an invaluable reference of materials engineering written for a broad audience in an engaging, effective way. Several stories explain how perseverance and organized research helps to discover new processes for making important materials and how new materials with unmatched properties are theoretically conceived, tested in the laboratory, mass produced and deployed for the benefit of all. This book provides a welcome introduction to how advances are made in the world of materials that sustain and define our contemporary standard of living. Suitable for trained materials scientists and the educated layman with an appreciation of engineering, the book will be especially appealing to the young materials engineer, for whom it will serve as a long-term reference due to its clear and rigorous illustration of the field's essential features.

About the Author

Dr. Tarasankar DebRoy is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. He develops computer models of welding and additive manufacturing that are useful to produce structurally sound and reliable products based on scientific principles. His models and research methodologies based on theories of metallurgy, heat and mass transfer, fluid flow and optimization have been widely used in industries, government laboratories and universities worldwide. Sir Harry Bhadeshia FREng, FRS, FNAE is the Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge, UK . His work on solid-state phase transformations has contributed to the invention of new alloys and towards the better processing of existing alloys to achieve unusual properties. His mathematical methods can be used to reduce the vast number of parameters that have to be controlled during the creation and manufacture of new alloys.
