Chapter 23 Methodology of Material Selection
The overall objective of this book is proper material selection and designs that do not fail in their anticipated lifetimes. It takes the right design, the right material, and the right treatments to make this happen. This book will assist your decision making process and will help you with successful designs.
The changes in this edition include updates to each chapter to make them conform to current industrial trends, new sections to three chapters, one new chapter, and the addition of a critical concept section and a case history at the end of each chapter. We also tried to make this book more international in nature by listing ASTM standards on materials and tests wherever possible. There are other international standards, but we believe that the ASTM standards are themost current. They are available through any reference library in the world and on the Internet. We work on materials problems from company operations in China, France, England, Australia, India, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and the United States. Designing parts or products in one country to be made in another requires diligence in material designation. You must designate your material of choice and treatments in such a way that your selection will be understood in other cultures. We have tried to pattern our designation recommendations with this in mind. The case histories we added to each chapter are real-life problems that we encountered in our company's corporate materials engineering laboratory.
The most significant change in this edition is the addition of a chapter on tribology, the study of friction, wear, bearings, and lubrication. This addition was made in response to a meeting on engineering education at a Gordon Research conference on tribology. The meeting was attended by about 30 educators from 17 countries, and the consensus of the group was that tribology is needed in engineering curricula. Most universities, though, have little room in their programs for a tribology elective and many do not have an instructor with the appropriate background to teach it. Most engineers will have to make decisions on sliding systems of some sort during their careers, having never been given the fundamentals.
All material failures are caused by fracture, corrosion, wear, or combinations thereof. We have always had a chapter on corrosion. Two chapters (2 and 20) deal with preventing mechanical failures, but wear and friction discussions were scattered throughout the book. We collected these scattered discussions into one chapter and added some new information on bearings and lubricants. We put the new tribology chapter in the front of the book because friction and wear properties of various materials are discussed in their respective chapters. We welcome comments from users on the new chapter. Do you teach it? Is it in the right place? Is it too little or too much on the subject? What is missing?
Countless people helped us with this edition. Our co-worker Mike Washo contributed the information on bearings, oils, and greases in Chapter 3. Mike has been Kodak's expert in these areas for more than 20 years. We thank him for his contribution. Professor Ken Dudema of the University of Michigan, the United States' preeminent tribologist, reviewed our tribology chapter. We thank him for his suggestions. Our company librarian, Ray Curtin, was a valuable aide in obtaining references and copies of competing texts for review. Prentice Hall had six user-professors review this edition: Norman R. Russell, Jefferson Community College; Serge Abrate, Southern Illinois University; W Perry Seagroves, New Hampshire Technical Institute; Cynthia Barnicki, Milwaukee School of Engineering; Tom Waskom, Eastern Illinois University; and Charles L. Gibbons, II, Schoolcraft College. We thank these fellow academicians for their many suggestions. Angela Leisner is acknowledged for her typing and organizing skills and Linda Budinski for her technical writing suggestions. Finally, we acknowledge the patience and understanding of our wives, who have not seen much of us for the past year.
