Powders and Particulates
The Metal Powder Industries Federation (Princeton, N.J.) released Hot Consolidation of Powders and Particulates by Animesh Bose, which includes a discussion of the principles and technology associated with the hot consolidation of powders. The text focuses on the four main processes that are currently in commercial production: hot pressing, hot isostatic pressing (HIP), powder extrusion, and powder forging. The authors look at several other processes where applications are still in their infancy, never got past the development stage, or are of historical interest.
