Powder Metallurgy Processing: New Techniques and Analyses covers the application of advanced analytical techniques in metallurgy, mechanics, and economics to the fundamentals of powder fabrication processes. The book discusses powder production by gas and water atomization of liquid metals; the triaxial stress state compaction of powders; and the diffusional homogenization of compacted blends of powders. The text also describes the deformation processing of sintered powder materials; the analysis of mechanical property-structure relations in powder forgings; and the economic risk analysis of a miniplant for production of steel strip from powder. Chemical engineers and metallurgists and students taking related courses will find the book invaluable.
This book is ASM's standard reference on the mechanical characteristics and testing of metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites. Understand the basics of mechanical behavior with in-depth coverage on testing methods for those materials. Comparative mechanical properties and the mechanical characteristics of metals, plastics, and ceramics are included throughout for general reference. Updated references to ISO, ASTM, DIN, EN, JIS and other standards are also included.
Using Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works
Technology is ubiquitous, and its potential to transform learning is immense. The first edition of Using Technology with Classroom Instruction That Works answered some vital questions about 21st century teaching and learning: What are the best ways to incorporate technology into the curriculum? What kinds of technology will best support particular learning tasks and objectives? How does a teacher ensure that technology use will enhance instruction rather than distract from it? This revised and updated second edition of that best-selling book provides fresh answers to these critical questions, taking into account the enormous technological advances that have occurred since the first edition w...
Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions can be seen, without exaggeration, as a landmark text in intellectual history. In his analysis of shifts in scientific thinking, Kuhn questioned the prevailing view that science was an unbroken progression towards the truth. Progress was actually made, he argued, via "paradigm shifts", meaning that evidence that existing scientific models are flawed slowly accumulates – in the face, at first, of opposition and doubt – until it finally results in a crisis that forces the development of a new model. This development, in turn, produces a period of rapid change – "extraordinary science," Kuhn terms it – before an eventual return to ...
