Reprint: originally published in hardback in 2000. This book, which was commissioned by the Copper Development Association, is intended to bring up to date the information contained in the standard reference work by P. J. Macken and A. A. Smith published in 1966. In particular, the book contains much valuable new material on the metallurgy of aluminium bronzes and the composition and manufacturing conditions required to ensure reliable corrosion resistance. It contains chapters on alloying elements, physical properties, casting processes and the properties of castings, the manufacture and design of castings, wrought aluminium bronzes, heat treatment, welding, corrosion, wear resistance, microstructure of binary alloys, ternary alloys, the Cu-Al-Ni-Fe system and the Cu-Mg-Al-Ni-Fe system. It also contains a historical introduction and a number of useful appendices. It will prove invaluable for designers, engineering consultants, metallurgists, architects, civil engineers and all those who are responsible for the selection of materials, as well as the manufacturers of these alloys. ISO-CEN and American standards are referred to.
