Reviews of previous editions: 'A publication of no equal that has become an essential reference during its 35 years of publication' ASLIB Book List 'All metallurgists will covet a copy of Smithells' Chemistry and Industry '(It) provides an invaluable reference source for all workers, libraries and research laboratories in the field of engineering and metallurgy' BNF Abstract Smithells is the only single volume that provides all the data and references needed by those practicing metallurgy. The seventh edition of this standard reference work for metallurgists includes important new chapters on powder metallurgy and superconductivity. All chapters have been thoroughly revised to bring them up to date with developments since the last edition in 1983. In all this is the most complete compendium of information for industrial and theoretical metallurgists, and it is now available in a more accessible format including current data to 1997. Also available is Smithells Light Metals Handbook (ISBN 0750636254). THE standard reference work for metallurgists Contains all data for researchers and professional metallurgists Fully updated to the latest revisions of international standards
Handbook on the Toxicology of Metals, Fourth Edition bridges the gap between established knowledgebase and new advances in metal toxicology to provide one essential reference for all those involved in the field. This book provides comprehensive coverage of basic toxicological data, emphasizing toxic effects primarily in humans, but also those of animals and biological systems in vitro. The fourth edition also contains several new chapters on important topics such as nanotoxicology, metals in prosthetics and dental implants, gene-environment interaction, neurotoxicology, metals in food, renal, cardiovascular, and diabetes effects of metal exposures and more. Volume I covers “General Conside...
Understanding the origin of electrical properties of alloys is critical to the development of new materials. Without relying on detailed quantum mechanics, this text introduces the basic concepts of atomic and magnetic correlations and explains their microstructural consequences.
This book is an attempt to explain hardness measurements of metals in terms of some of their more basic physical properties. The intention is to provide, for physicists, engineers, and metallurgists, a better understanding of what hardness means and what hardness measurements imply. The author emphasises the physical concepts involved, so that non-mathematical readers can grasp and appreciate the general physical picture without needing to follow the more detailed mathematical treatment.
Handbook on Metals in Clinical and Analytical Chemistry
Describes general aspects of metals in clinical chemistry focusing not only on the physiology of metal ions and their analytical determination in biological materials, but also on their geochemical distribution, technical uses and environmental effects.
Optical Properties and Electronic Structure of Metals and Alloys
This text presents analytical techniques for the determination of heavy metals in air particles, water, soil and biological samples. It details experimental studies to reduce the occurance of disease, remediate contaminated sites and establish acceptable range of oral intakes (AROI) guidelines.
