Choice Review

Brown's handbook is a well-conceived and -written thesaurus describing conventional as well as novel fabrication and assembly methods, and is based on information provided by a large number of companies. It consists of nine parts, each one containing from two to 12 chapters focused on description of each process, its advantages and economics, and tooling, quality control, microstructure, and soundness of produced components. Following an introduction, the various parts discuss design and processes, such as sheet metal and press, machine-shop, fastening and joining, injection molding, surface treatment, electrochemical machining, and machine deburring. The ninth chapter discusses ceramic materials and advanced composites. The book is well presented and bound with numerous illustrations, some of which are, however, poorly reproduced. No references of any type. Comprehensive index, very useful to design and manufacturing engineers. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty. T. Z. Kattamis; University of Connecticut
