Over recent decades, modeling an simulation of solid-state precipitation has attracted increased attention in academia and industry due to their important contributions in designing properties of advanced structural materials and in increasing productivity and decreasing costs for expensive alloying. In particular, precipitation of second phases is an important means for controlling the mechanical-technological properties of structural materials. However, profound physical modeling of precipitation is not a trivial task.

This book introduces you to the classical methods of precipitation modeling and to recently-developed advanced, computationally-efficient techniques

 

  • nucleation theory, precipitation growth, calculation of interfacial enegies
  • advanced techniques for technologically relevant multi-component systems and complex thermo-mechanical treatments
  • numerical approaches using evolution equations and discrete particle size distributions
  • the major software products available for precipitation kinetics simulations

[Translate to English:] Bild des Buches Leichtbau

2009, Wiley-VCH

ISBN: 978-3-527-32372-2

Lightweight construction is a comprehensive design principle that aims to reduce the weight or mass of technical products. Applied to moving machine elements, means of transport and sports equipment, the motives are, for example, to achieve higher accelerations, increase the payload and reduce the energy required. The spectrum of uses for lightweight construction ranges from general mechanical engineering (e.g. robots, packaging machines, sporting goods, etc.), power generation systems (e.g. wind turbines) to vehicle and aircraft construction to the design of space vehicles and space stations.

The implementation of lightweight construction requires a holistic view of the various technical possibilities. For example, the substitution of materials without adapting the design is generally not efficient. This book was created following the "Austrian Light Weight Structures" project and is intended for students of technology, employees in research and development, designers, development and production engineers, technical salespeople, decision-makers for innovations and everyone who is interested in the implementation of lightweight construction concepts are, convey knowledge-based lightweight construction solutions and encourage them to creatively implement them.

2nd edition, 2013, Hanser Verlag,

eISBN: 978-1-56990-549-4

Print ISBN: 978-1-56990-548-7

The staggering growth rates in plastics production and applications increase the demand for meaningful measuring and analysis methods in polymer testing. The advances in electronic measuring techniques led to further developments in classic testing methods as well as to completely new methods. This book describes the significance of characteristic data for the quantification of the interrelationship between microstructure and macroscopic properties.
Additional information about damage processes and deformation mechanisms can be gained with the help of coupled non-destructive polymer testing methods and hybrid methods of polymer diagnostics, respectively. Numerous examples for the optimization of polymers and their composites and the assessment of component properties provide a material science focused insight into modern polymer testing.

[Translate to English:] Bild des Buches Computanional Materials Engineering

2007, Elsevier, ISBN 978-0-12-369468-3.

Computational Materials Engineering is an advanced introduction to the computer-aided modeling of essential material properties and behavior, including the physical, thermal and chemical parameters, as well as the mathematical tools used to perform simulations. Its emphasis will be on crystalline materials, which includes all metals. The basis of Computational Materials Engineering allows scientists and engineers to create virtual simulations of material behavior and properties, to better understand how a particular material works and performs and then use that knowledge to design improvements for particular material applications. The text displays knowledge of software designers, materials scientists and engineers, and those involved in materials applications like mechanical engineers, civil engineers, electrical engineers, and chemical engineers. Readers from students to practicing engineers to materials research scientists will find in this book a single source of the major elements that make up contemporary computer modeling of materials characteristics and behavior. The reader will gain an understanding of the underlying statistical and analytical tools that are the basis for modeling complex material interactions, including an understanding of computational thermodynamics and molecular kinetics; as well as various modeling systems. Finally, the book will offer the reader a variety of algorithms to use in solving typical modeling problems so that the theory presented herein can be put to real-world use.

3rd edition 2015, Hanser Verlag, ISBN: 3446443509

In plastics testing, meaningful measurement and evaluation methods are required - all the more so since enormous growth rates are being recorded in the production and use of plastics. The classic test procedures have evolved and completely new methods have been established. This book describes the relationships between microstructure and macroscopic properties. In addition, methods are presented with which in-depth information about damage processes and mechanisms can be derived. A special feature of this book is the clarification of the informative value of material parameters for the optimization of plastics and composites and for the assessment of component properties.

Springer Engineering Materials 2001

ISBN: 978-3-662-04556-5

This book provides an overview of recent advances in polymer fracture mechanics (experimental and alternative methods), morphological property correlations (homopolymers, copolymers, blends), hybrid methods for polymer testing and polymer diagnostics, and biocompatible materials and medical prostheses as application examples and limitations. The investigation of the deformation and fracture behavior with experimental methods of fracture mechanics has been the subject of intensive research in the last decade. In a systematic way, each chapter of this book provides an overview of the individual aspects. This book will be of great value to scientists, engineers and polymer materials science graduates.

[Translate to English:] Bild des Buches Handbook of cellular metals

Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, 2002, ISBN: 3-527-30339-1

In recent years there has been increasing interest in porous metallic materials, in particular in foams made from aluminum or aluminum alloys. The impetus for this lies in recent process developments that promise better quality materials and lower costs. In addition, the environment for the application of new materials has changed significantly. Today, higher demands on occupant safety in automobiles or on easy material recycling make metal foams attractive where a few years ago the same material would have been ruled out for technical or economic reasons. This handbook gives all materials scientists and engineers involved in the research, development and application of metal foams an overview of the latest results on new production processes, applications and industrial applications, as well as the important subject of the characterization and properties of these advanced materials.

[Translate to English:] Bild des Buches Ferrum Noricum und die Stadt auf dem Magdalensberg

 Springer Wien

ISBN: 978-3-211-82789-5

Since the Stone Age, human history has been accompanied by the search for suitable materials for tools and everyday objects. Metal materials are of outstanding importance thanks to their properties. The book describes its development path up to the Ferrum noricum, which was highly valued by the Romans, the importance of the town on the Magdalensberg in Carinthia as their trading point and focuses on the proof of the production process of this hardenable carbon steel, which is proven by tests and finds. The metallurgy of the kiln, which corresponds to the thermodynamic principles described in detail, differs significantly from the ideas that existed until recently. The results led to a now much more meaningful new translation of the relevant passages from Pliny's naturalis historia. Recent investigations could contribute to the clarification of hitherto contradictory find results. The aim of the book is also to give archaeologists and other interested parties an insight into the metallurgy of the kiln and to refute misconceptions that still exist.
