Description / Abstract:

The only comprehensive, systematic comparison of major mechanical surface treatments, their effects, and the resulting material properties. The result is an up-to-date, full review of this topic, collating the knowledge hitherto spread throughout many original papers. The book begins with a description of elementary processes and mechanisms to give readers an easy introduction, before proceeding to offer systematic, detailed descriptions of the various techniques and three very important types of load effect: thermal, quasistatic, and cyclic loading. It combines and correlates experimental and model aspects, while supplying in-depth explanations of the mechanisms and a very high amount of exemplary data. Volker Schulze heads the Manufacturing Processes and Component Behaviour section of the Institute for Materials Science and Engineering I at Karlsruhe University since 2004. He began his studies in Mechanical Engineering at Karlsruhe University in 1985, took his master's degree in 1990 and obtained his doctorate of engineering in 1993. He became head of the Materials Testing Laboratory at the institute in 1995. Since 2002, he serves as head of the International Scientific Committee on Shot Peening, and has recently completed his lecture qualification (Habilitation) on surface layers after mechanical surface treatments. His main working areas include lecturing on Materials Science and Engineering and conducting research focused on studies of - surface layer characteristics after different production processes, - residual stress stability at thermal, quasistatic, cyclic and combined loading conditions, and - the simulation of production processes.
