New and Published Books

  1. Aluminum Recycling, Second Edition

    By Mark E. Schlesinger

    What makes this book unique is a specific focus on aluminum recovery, rather than just recycling in general. It also offers an integrated discussion of scrap recovery and re-melting operations and includes economic as well as technical elements of recycling. Important topics include a discussion of...

  2. Control for Aluminum Production and Other Processing Industries

    By Mark P. Taylor, John J. J. Chen, Brent Richmond Young

    An uncomfortable observation in the Shift Logs and Process Control records of most aluminum smelting plants is that process control failures, large and small, happen every day. Although only a small fraction of these failures give rise to catastrophic events, the difference between a disaster we...

  3. Industrial Brazing Practice, Second Edition

    By Philip Roberts

    In the past ten years, brazing technology has undergone sweeping changes. Yet because there are so few practitioners who understand the finer points of the technology, many of the companies that use brazing as their preferred metal-joining procedure are failing to use it to best effect. Fully...

  4. Superconductivity Revisited

    By Ralph Dougherty, J. Daniel Kimel

    While the macroscopic phenomenon of superconductivity is well known and in practical use worldwide, the current theoretical paradigm for superconductivity suffers from a number of limitations. For example, there is no currently accepted theoretical explanation for the pattern of superconductor...
