Powder metallurgy (PM) is a highly attractive process because it permits the production of unique parts with unique properties by controlling their microstructure. Since the processing route for these materials is quite different from traditional engineering materials, it is vital that the PM process is understood and the potential offered by components made via this route needs to be fully integrated with the design process. "Using Powder Metallurgy in Design - Wear, Corrosion and Fatigue Resistance" is valuable reading for those new to the subject as well as providing an excellent source of information for CPD for existing users of the technology and will cover areas such as: the process and possibilities of PM; designing with PM for adhesive wear resistance; erosive/corrosive wear resistance and increased fatigue life; and using PM for self-lubricating materials and for friction materials. The historical growth of powder metal application and the factors contributing to the cost effectiveness of powder metal products are highlighted and the most important factors influencing the fatigue life of PM components are reviewed.
