Proper design of printed circuit boards can make the difference between a product passing emissions requirements during the first cycle or not. Traditional EMC design practices have been simply rule-based, that is, a list of rules-of-thumb are presented to the board designers to implement. When a particular rule-of-thumb is difficult to implement, it is often ignored. After the product is built, it will often fail emission requirements and various time consuming and costly add-ons are then required. Proper EMC design does not require advanced degrees from universities, nor does it require strenuous mathematics. It does require a basic understanding of the underlying principles of the potenti...
Comprises 25 papers from the November 1996 symposium in New Orleans. The papers explore four subject areas: pressure vessel and nuclear forgings, general industrial forgings, test methods, and turbine and generator forgings. Specific paper topics include: new materials and forgings used for pressure
This ASM Handbook is the most comprehensive collection of engineering information on this important structural material published in the last sixty years. Prepared with the cooperation of the International Magnesium Association, it presents the current industrial practices and provides information and data about the properties and performance of magnesium alloys. Materials science and engineering are covered, including processing, properties, and commercial uses.
Heat Treatment of Aluminum Alloys examines the physical-chemical processes that occur during various heat treatments and presents applied data on the thermal processing of specific commercial aluminum alloys. The book offers practical recommendations on the technology of heat treatments and provides a detailed discussion of different types of alloying systems. Isothermal and thermokinetic diagrams of phase transformations illustrate the fundamental basis of optimum treatment regimes. Considering proper thermal treatment along with industrial equipment and auxiliary materials, the authors also demonstrate various ways to avoid typical problems in heat treatment.
