About this Textbook

The book covers the most important materials (naturals, metals, ceramics, polymers and composites) to be used mainly as structural engineering materials. Their main applications based on the properties are described in the first chapters of the book: mechanical, physical and chemical. The second part of the book is dedicated to the conceptual design by properties for a certain structural application: stiffness, mechanical strength, toughness, fatigue resistance, creep, etc., taking into account the weight and the cost. One of the chapters of the second part of the book is focused on the heat treatments of steels in order to improve their resistance to fatigue. The book concludes with a critical comparison between materials considering their production, properties and cost, and the forecast about the utilization of the different fields of materials in structural applications.

About the authors

José Antonio Pero-Sanz Elorz (1934-2012) had a Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Barcelona (Spain), was a founder member of the International Metallographic Society (USA), a fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (UK) and Mêmbre d’Honneour de la Société Française de Métallurgie et des Matériaux. He was adviser on Physical Metallurgy matters for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) as well as for Arcelor Mittal-Europe and was member of the Conseil Scientifique des Usines Renault. He was the Responsible of Research and Development of the Group of Materials in the Oviedo and Madrid School of Mines and professor in both schools for more than 30 years. He has published several books: Materiales Metálicos. Solidificación, Diagramas, Transformaciones (Dossat, Madrid, 1988, ISBN: 84-237-0729-6); Materiales para Ingeniería. Fundiciones Férreas (Dossat, Madrid, 1994, ISBN: 84-237-0822-5); Ciencia e Ingeniería de Materiales.
