Workshop Processes, Practices and Materials is an ideal introduction to workshop processes, practices and materials for entry-level engineers and workshop technicians. With detailed illustrations throughout and simple, clear language, this is a practical introduction to what can be a very complex subject. It has been significantly updated and revised to include new material on adhesives, protective coatings, plastics and current Health and Safety legislation. It covers all the standard topics, including safe practices, measuring equipment, hand and machine tools, materials and joining methods, making it an indispensable handbook for use both in class and the workshop. Its broad coverage makes it a useful reference book for many different courses worldwide.

This book presents the latest advances in mechanical and materials engineering applied to the machining, joining and modification of modern engineering materials. The contributions cover the classical fields of casting, forming and injection moulding as representative manufacturing methods, whereas additive manufacturing methods (rapid prototyping and laser sintering) are treated as more innovative and recent technologies that are paving the way for the manufacturing of shapes and features that traditional methods are unable to deliver. The book also explores water jet cutting as an innovative cutting technology that avoids the heat build-up typical of classical mechanical cutting. It introduces readers to laser cutting as an alternative technology for the separation of materials, and to classical bonding and friction stir welding approaches in the context of joining technologies. In many cases, forming and machining technologies require additional post-treatment to achieve the required level of surface quality or to furnish a protective layer. Accordingly, sections on laser treatment, shot peening and the production of protective layers round out the book’s coverage.

Mechanical Engineer’s Reference Book: 11th Edition presents a comprehensive examination of the use of Systéme International d’ Unités (SI) metrication. It discusses the effectiveness of such a system when used in the field of engineering. It addresses the basic concepts involved in thermodynamics and heat transfer. Some of the topics covered in the book are the metallurgy of iron and steel; screw threads and fasteners; hole basis and shaft basis fits; an introduction to geometrical tolerancing; mechanical working of steel; high strength alloy steels; advantages of making components as castings; and basic theories of material properties. The definitions and classifications of refractories are fully covered. An in-depth account of the mechanical properties of non-ferrous materials is provided. Different fabrication techniques are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to description of tubes for water, gas, sanitation, and heating services. Another section focuses on the accountant's measure of productivity. The book can provide useful information to engineers, metallurgists, students, and researchers.
