Reviews - What do customers think about Materials for High Temperature Engineering Applications (Engineering Materials)?
Not a technical referance Sep 1, 2006
I agree with the previous review. However, in my opinion the book is very very basic. If you had a ten year old who was interested in material science, this is the book for him. Just to, re-iterate there is "ZERO" technical information.
A Good Overview Jan 9, 2003
This book is a good overview of high temperature metals and gives some of the background for how these materials came into common use. It does a good job of providing some insights into the "why" some materials are better than others for reasons of oxidation, fatigue etc... But, this is NOT a book you should go to for material data. Most of the graphs are labeled "typical" You will more than likely end up buying another book or websearching to get such data. Overall, though, it was a good intro for someone who needs to get up to speed on this area (e.g. for me it was turbine materials)and lay the groundwork. The book is very well referenced to various journal articles and it will definitely remain in my library
