‘The Superalloys: Fundamentals and Applications’, Cambridge University Press, 2006.

The publishers, upon consultation with reviewers, have described this book in the following way: Superalloys are unique high temperature materials used in gas turbine engines, which display excellent resistance to mechanical and chemical degradation. This book presents the underlying metallurgical principles which have guided their development and also the practical aspects of component design and fabrication from an engineering standpoint. The topics of alloy design, process development, component engineering, lifetime estimation and materials behaviour are covered, with emphasis on critical components such as turbine blading and discs. A chapter on engineering coatings and a nal one on future projections are included. This is the rst single-authored comprehensive textbook on this class of material; it provides a strong grounding for those studying physical metallurgy at the advanced level, as well as practising engineers. Included at the end of each chapter are exercises designed to test the reader's understanding of the concepts presented.

A paperback edition was published in 2008.
