This new book is an important discussion of the principles and technology associated with the hot consolidation of powders.
The text focuses on the 4 main processes which are currently in commercial production: Hot Pressing, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), Powder Extrusion, and Powder Forging. In addition, the authors look at several other processes where applications are still in their infancy, never got past the development stage or are of historical interest. The authors have created a balanced particulate materials treatment by focusing on metals, ceramics, intermetallics and composites.
This new title will be of interest to: design engineers, industrial process specialists, mechanical engineers and materials engineers.
