Summary and Info
This handbook introduces beryllium and its chemical, mechanical, physical, and nuclear properties and will be of interest to practicing engineers and material scientists. Chapters include the sources of beryllium and the thermodynamics of extraction. Beryllium-containing ores treated with conventional mineral processing techniques such as crushing, grinding, desliming, chemical activation, and flotation is discussed. Alloying, casting, powder processing, forming, metal removal, joining and other manufacturing processes are covered. The environmental degradation of beryllium and its alloys both in aqueous and high temperature conditions are presented, as well as corrosion prevention. Waste recycling, health and environmental issues, and hygienic practices are thoroughly presented. Content: Front Matter Prefaces • Table of Contents •Section 1. Introduction 1.
