Unlike any other text of its kind, Materials Selection and Applications in Mechanical Engineering contains complete and in-depth coverage on materials of use, their principles, processing and handling details; along with illustrative examples and sample projects. It clearly depicts the needed topics and gives adequate coverage with ample examples so that ME students can appreciate the relevance of materials to their discipline. Featuring the basic principles of materials selection for application in various engineering outcomes, the contents of this text follow those of the common first-level introductory course in materials science and engineering. Directed toward mechanical engineering, it introduces the materials commonly used in this branch, along with an exhaustive description of their properties that decide their functional characteristics and selection for use, typical problems encountered during application due to improper processing or handling of materials, non-destructive test procedures used in maintenance to detect and correct problems, and much more. What’s more, numerous examples and project-type analyses to select proper materials for application are provided. With the use of this unique text, teaching a relevant second-level course in materials to ME majors has never been easier! Covers all aspects of engineering materials necessary for their successful utilization in mechanical components and systems. Defines a procedure to evaluate the materials’ performance efficiency in engineering applications and illustrates it with a number of examples. Includes sample project activities, along with a number of assignments for self exercise. Keeps chapters short and targeted toward specific topics for easy assimilation. Contains several unique chapters, including microprocessing, MEMS, problems encountered during use of materials in mechanical components, and NDT procedures used to detect common defects such as cracks, porosity and gas pockets, internal residual stresses, etc. Features commonly used formulae in mechanical system components in an appendix. Several tables containing material properties are included throughout the book.
Electrorheological (ER) fluids and magnetorheological (MR) suspensions show dramatic and reversible rheological changes when the electric or magnetic field is applied. Over the past several years, their performance and reliability have been significantly improved and their potential applications and acceptances have been widened. These fluids may make a tremendous impact on industry and technology.This volume contains a total of 107 papers which are most up to date and which give probably the best information on the state of the art of the ERF/MRS field. It covers the fields of material technology, mechanisms, bridging structure and properties on ER fluids, MR suspensions and ferrofluids, and the fields of their applications, i.e. damping devices, clutches, braking devices, actuators, optical devices, polishing devices and so on.
