The Stir of Nature - A Book for Young American Naturalists: William H. Carr
Friction Stir Casting Modification for Enhanced Structural Efficiency: A Volume in the Friction Stir Welding and Processing Book Series summarizes current research and applications of friction stir processing techniques for casting modification. Research in this area has shown significant benefit in terms of fatigue performance as a result of friction stir processing. This book addresses the latest research, providing readers with a summary of these results and new guidelines for designers. Provides the benefits of friction stir casting, including its solid phase process, low distortion of workpiece, good dimensional stability and repeatability, high joint strength, and more Summarizes current research and applications of friction stir processing techniques for casting modification Presents it usage in the production of products such as rugs, wire, or any other gases, and its applications for decreased fuel consumption in light weight aircraft, and its automotive and ship applications Dr. Saumyadeep Jana, a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, works in the area of friction stir welding and processing of various ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. Dr. Jana, a metallurgical engineer by training and profession, studies the correlation between microstructure, joint properties, and processing conditions. Dissimilar metal joining through friction stir welding (FSW), high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel FSW development, aluminum alloy casting modification through friction stir are some of the works Dr. Jana has been greatly involved with. Dr. Jana earned his Ph.D. in Metallurgical Engineering from Missouri University of Science & Technology, Rolla in 2009. During his Ph.D., Dr. Jana investigated the effects of friction stir processing on the fatigue behavior of an automotive grade cast aluminum alloy. To date, Dr. Jana has nine peer-reviewed journal publications and one U.S. patent to his credit. His total citation record stands at 394 with an h-index of 7.
