This book by B Webster Smith replaces ‘Copper Through the Ages’ issued in 1934. It is intended for those interested in the history of copper mining, the development of metal-working processes and the uses of copper through the past six thousand years.
This book, edited by Carol Powell and Roger Francis, is aimed at engineers new to the marine environment and those wanting to update their knowledge. Applications, commonly used alloy compositions, mechanical properties and the types of corrosion that the alloy groups are susceptible to are all described. The concluding section provides an explanation of galvanic corrosion in seawater and how each alloy group behaves when coupled to others
These data sheets, originally published in a series from 1968 – 1972, cover all the main coppers and copper alloys. They contain an invaluable summary of data relating to the physical and mechanical properties of the materials at low, ambient and elevated temperatures which is not available elsewhere.
