Description - Titanium and Titanium Alloys by Christoph Leyens
An excellent reference for materials scientists and engineers needing to gain further knowledge of these engineering materials. After introductory chapters on the fundamental material properties of titanium, readers will find comprehensive descriptions of the development, processing and properties of modern titanium alloys. There then follows a detailed discussion of the applications of titanium and its alloys in aerospace, medicine, energy and automotive technology. The well-balanced mixture of authors from industry and academia makes this handbook especially useful as a hands-on reference in all fields of modern titanium research and technology.
