Atlas of Material Damage Excerpt :

Atlas of Material Damage, Second Edition provides a systematic analysis of the modes of damage and morphology of damaged material, and compares the experiences of different industries to provide insight into the most frequently encountered failures, reasons for these failures, and potential improvements to prevent future materials failure. Product reliability is a critical aim of materials scientists and engineers. Uninterrupted performance of manufactured products at typical and extreme conditions of use is the major goal of product development and the most important indicator of material quality. This atlas has microscopic pictures, schematic diagrams, and graphs which show how materials fail, how they are produced to not fail, and how they are designed to perform particular functions to make outstanding products. Findings presented by each illustration are fully explained in the text and labeled. Materials increasingly must have optimal structure and specially designed morphology. The book offers numerous examples of how this special morphology can be achieved in electronics, the plastics industry, the pharmaceutical industry, aerospace, automotive applications, medicine, dentistry, and many other fields. This book provides information on defect formation and materials damage; discusses effect of composition, morphological features and structure of different materials on material performance, durability, and resilience; and analyses the cause of material damage and degradation, and the effect of processing conditions on material damage. Includes data and images for many material types, making this a hard-working reference guide for engineers working in a range of different market sectors Provides core data related to the field Explains the range of test and imaging techniques available, enabling engineers and scientists to take optimal and cost effective decisions Offers an essential tool for identifying material damage and implementing successful maintenance and

Weathering of Plastics Excerpt :

In spite of extensive efforts, material weathering testing still requires improvement. This book presents findings and opinions of experts in material degradation testing. The aim is to improve testing methods and procedures. Materials are presented to show that photochemical degradation rate depends on a combination of environmental factors such as UV radiation, temperature, humidity, rain, stress, and concentration of reactive pollutants. The potential effect of each parameter of degradation on data gathered is discussed based on known results from a long experience in testing. This book contains data obtained in laboratories of the largest manufacturers of UV stabilizers and chemical companies that manufacture durable materials. The book gives details of testing procedures and choice of parameters of exposure which are crucial for obtaining laboratory results correlating with environmental performance of materials. In addition to exposure conditions, the book contains many suggestions on sample preparation and post-exposure testing. The effective use of these methods shortens testing time of materials and determines acceleration rate of testing. The book also gives examples of complete, well-designed weathering experiments which may be used as patterns for selection of parameters and techniques for new studies. The areas of research that still require more attention in future studies are clearly indicated.

Preventive Conservation From Climate and Damage Monitoring to a Systemic and Integrated Approach Excerpt :

The concept of preventive conservation has successfully introduced the knowledge that "prevention is better than cure" into the built heritage sector. The benefits of this approach are the cost-effectiveness, the improved protection of heritage values, the reduced risk for accumulating deterioration and additional damage, the prolongation of the physical service life of buildings and building parts and the empowerment of local communities in dealing with heritage. Increasingly, arguments rise against reactive treatment patterns, which result too often in postponed interventions and increasing costs for restoration. WTA-Nederland-Vlaanderen, the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation and the Civil Engineering Department of KU Leuven jointly organised an international conference on preventive conservation approaches - including climate and damage monitoring - and how to implement these monitoring tools within a systemic approach. The conference took place in context of the international WTA days, 3-5 April 2019, and the 10th anniversary of the UNESCO Chair on Preventive Conservation, Monitoring and Maintenance of Monuments and Sites (PRECOM3OS). The contributions meet the increasing demand for information, case studies and practical examples to support the transition towards more preventive rather than reactive conservation actions. The volume aims at academics and professionals involved or interested in the conservation of buildings, building parts and heritage.

Friction Wear and Erosion Atlas Excerpt :

Friction, wear, and erosion are major issues in mechanical engineering and materials science, resulting in major costs to businesses operating in the automotive, biomedical, petroleum/oil/gas, and structural engineering industries. The good news is, by understanding what friction, wear, or erosion mode predominates in a mechanism or device, you can take action to prevent its costly failure. Seeing Is Believing Containing nearly 300 photos of component failures, macro- and micrographs of surface damage, and schematics on material removal mechanisms collected over 50 years of tribology consulting and research, Friction, Wear, and Erosion Atlas is a must-have quick reference for tribology professionals and laymen alike. Complete with detailed explanations of every friction, wear, and erosion process, the atlas’ catalog of images is supported by a wealth of practical guidance on: Diagnosing the specific causes of part failure Identifying popular modes of wear, including rolling and impact, with a special emphasis on adhesion and abrasion Understanding manifestations of friction, such as force traces from a laboratory test rig for a variety of test couples Recognizing liquid droplet, solid particle, slurry, equal impingement, and cavitation modes of erosion Developing solutions to process-limiting problems Featuring a glossary of tribology terms and definitions, as well as hundreds of visual representations, Friction, Wear, and Erosion Atlas is both user friendly and useful. It not only raises awareness of the importance of tribology, but provides guidance for how designers can proactively mitigate tribology concerns.
