Providing extensive coverage and comprehensive discussion on the fundamental concepts and processes of machine design, this book begins with detailed discussion of the types of materials, their properties and selection criteria for designing. The text, the first volume of a two volume set, covers different types of stresses including direct stress, bending stress, torsional stress and combined stress in detail. It goes on to explain various types of temporary and permanent joints including pin joint, cotter joint, threaded joint and welded joint. Finally, the book covers the design procedure of keys, cotters, couplings, shafts, levers and springs. Also examined are applications of different types of joints used in boilers, bridges, power presses, automobile springs, crew jack and coupling.

Welding and joining techniques play an essential role in both the manufacture and in-service repair of aerospace structures and components, and these techniques become more advanced as new, complex materials are developed. Welding and joining of aerospace materials provides an in-depth review of different techniques for joining metallic and non-metallic aerospace materials. Part one opens with a chapter on recently developed welding techniques for aerospace materials. The next few chapters focus on different types of welding such as inertia friction, laser and hybrid laser-arc welding. The final chapter in part one discusses the important issue of heat affected zone cracking in welded superalloys. Part two covers other joining techniques, including chapters on riveting, composite-to-metal bonding, diffusion bonding and recent improvements in bonding metals. Part two concludes with a chapter focusing on the use of high-temperature brazing in aerospace engineering. Finally, an appendix to the book covers the important issue of linear friction welding. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Welding and joining of aerospace materials is an essential reference for engineers and designers in the aerospace, materials and welding and joining industries, as well as companies and other organisations operating in these sectors and all those with an academic research interest in the subject. Provides an in-depth review of different techniques for joining metallic and non-metallic aerospace materials Discusses the important issue of heat affected zone cracking in welded superalloys Covers many joining techniques, including riveting, composite-to-metal bonding and diffusion bonding
