Preface.- 1 Introduction to aerospace applications.- 2 Metal based materials for airframe applications.- 3 Materials for gas turbine aero engines.- 4 Steels.- 5 Titanium and titanium alloys.- 6 Superalloys.- 7 Coatings for gas turbine engine.- 8 Hot corrosion.- 9 Other interesting materials for aerospace and related applications.
This book presents an up-to-date overview on the main classes of metallic materials currently used in aeronautical structures and propulsion engines and discusses other materials of potential interest for structural aerospace applications. The coverage encompasses light alloys such as aluminum-, magnesium-, and titanium-based alloys, including titanium aluminides; steels; superalloys; oxide dispersion strengthened alloys; refractory alloys; and related systems such as laminate composites. In each chapter, materials properties and relevant technological aspects, including processing, are presented. Individual chapters focus on coatings for gas turbine engines and hot corrosion of alloys and coatings. Readers will also find consideration of applications in aerospace-related fields. The book takes full account of the impact of energy saving and environmental issues on materials development, reflecting the major shifts that have occurred in the motivations guiding research efforts into the development of new materials systems. Aerospace Alloys will be a valuable reference for graduate students on materials science and engineering courses and will also provide useful information for engineers working in the aerospace, metallurgical, and energy production industries.
Stefano Gialanella is Associate Professor in Materials Science and Technology at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Trento, Italy. He is responsible for delivering courses to undergraduate students in Industrial Engineering, Master’s students in Materials Engineering and Cultural Heritage, and PhD students in Materials, Mechatronics, and System Engineering. In addition, he has given lectures and courses in Materials Science at the University of Florence, University of Pisa, Politecnico di Milano, and Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain). Dr. Gialanella’s research interests include intermetallics, oxidation of structural alloys, non-destructive testing of power plant components, shape-memory alloys, tribology with particular reference to automotive brake systems, and environmental monitoring of cultural heritage with particular reference to phase transformations and relevant structural and microstructural aspects. Based on this activity, he has co-authored more than 130 scientific papers in international refereed journals. He is also a member of the editorial boards of Materials Science Foundations and Journal of Metallurgy.
Alessio Malandruccolo is a plant metallurgist at an Italian steel and nickel alloy Company, a position held since the time he received his Master degree in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Trento. He is currently involved in R&D, quality control and improvement, failure analysis, revamping and design of new installations for production of new alloys. He has also experience as teaching assistant in Materials Technology and Applied Chemistry in the Master course in Architecture and Building Engineering at the University of Trento (Italy), collaborating also with the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Bolzano (Italy), with lectures and seminars regarding his professional sector. Alessio Malandruccolo developed part of his research experience and skills at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility – ESRF (Grenoble, F) and at the Diamond Light Source (Didcot, UK), focusing mainly on X-ray diffraction applied to inorganic materials characterization. He cultivates a personal interest in product design and perception, user oriented design, and cognitive sciences.
