Adopting a holistic approach to materials simulation, this monograph covers four very important structural materials: aluminum, carbon steels, superalloys, and plastics. Following an introduction to the concept of integral modeling, the book goes on to cover a wide range of production steps and usage, including melt flow and solidification behavior, coating, shaping, thermal treatment, deep drawing, hardness and ductility, damage initiation, and deformation behavior.
Professor Gottstein is the Head of the Institute of Physical Metallurgy and Metal Physics of the Rhineland-Westphalian Technical University of Aachen, Germany. Having obtained his academic degrees from RWTH, he worked for altogether nine years in the USA, as a Visiting Scientist in the Argonne National Laboratory, Associate Professor and then as a Professor at Michigan State University. In 1989 he took up his present appointment at RWTH. Professor Gottstein has authored ten textbooks, more than 450 articles and 42 invited papers for international conferences. He has received numerous scientific awards, including the Max Planck Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the Masing Award of the German Metallurgical Society and the Heyn Medal of the German Materials Society. Since January 2004 he is an editor of the scientific journal Acta Materialia.
