The history of stainless steel by Harold M Cobb( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The History of Stainless Steel provides a fascinating glimpse into a vital material that we may take for granted today. Stainless steel, called "the miracle metal" and "the crowning achievement of metallurgy" by the prominent metallurgist Carl Zapffe, is a material marvel with an equally fascinating history of people, places, and technology. As stainless steel nears the hundredth anniversary of its discovery, The History of Stainless Steel by Harold Cobb is a fitting perspective on a vital material of our modern life. Aptly called the miracle metal by the renowned metallurgist Carl Zapffe, stainless steel is not only a metallurgical marvel, but its history provides an equally fascinating story of curiosity, competitive persistence, and entrepreneurial spirit. The History of Stainless Steel is the world's first book that captures the unfolding excitement and innovations of stainless steel pioneers and entrepreneurs. Many new insights are given into the work of famous pioneers like Harry Brearley, Elwood Haynes, and Benno Strauss, including significant technical contributions of lesser known figures like William Krivsky. This fascinating history of stainless steel exemplifies the great push of progress in the 20th Century. From the stainless steel cutlery of Brearley in 1913, stainless steel burst on the modern scene in many tangible ways. Excerpted text by William Van Alen, architect of the Chrysler Building, describes the early architectural use of stainless steel. Another historic application of stainless steel is the revolution in rail travel by the Edward G. Budd Company, which built the first light-weight stainless steel passenger trains--with an astounding 90% reduction in fuel costs. This remains recognized today as one of the technological marvels of the modern world. Harold Cobb, a metallurgist who has spent much of his career in the stainless steel industry, uncovers many interesting stories and insights, including a special perspective on the prominent role of stainless steel in the activities of emerging technical societies such as the American Society for Metals and the American Society for Testing and Materials. Amply illustrated and with a 78-page timeline, this publication truly evokes the inspirations created by and from stainless steel

Heat treatment of gears : a practical guide for engineers by A. K Rakhit( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Rakhit wants other engineers to avoid the considerable trouble he had understanding the art of gear heat treatment when he first embarked on a career in gear design and manufacturing. He explains how heat treating and gears made of some kinds of steel gives the gears high geometric accuracy, but can also distort them and raise the cost of manufacturing, so a gear engineer needs to excel in manufacturing, lubrication, life and failure analysis, and machine design as well as design. He presents a case history of each successful gear heat treatment process that provide information on the quality of gear that can be expected with the proper control of material and processes.

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This collection of 174 papers from the April 2002 conference presents recent developments in stainless steel, friction stir, gas tungsten arc, and laser beam welding along with new results about the reduction of cracking, the properties of weldments, the modeling of residual stresses, and robotics. Among the topics are HAZ properties of high nitrogen austenitic stainless steel, anode heat transfer in GTA welding, the effect of pin tool shape on metal flow during friction stir welding, and fume generation and control in gas metal arc welding. Other topics include consumables for underwater wet welding, components of the creep strength of welds, and the weldability of electro-deposited nickel.
