    Manual 53 is a comprehensive, in-depth publication that covers the full range and scope of steel forgings. Twenty-two comprehensive chapters discuss:

    • Background information on the classification of forgings according to the method of manufacture:

    • Importance of steel production methods in establishing the expected properties:

    • A critical review of over 60 ASTM forging standards covering applications as diverse as railroad and power generation equipment, pressure vessel components, and a wide range of general industrial equipment

    • The effect of various types of forging operations relative to soundness and application

    • Specialized nondestructive testing methods developed for forgings

    • Economic and quality factors regarding the choice between forgings and other steel product forms

    • Special considerations in the heat treatment of forgings

    • Pros and cons of the timing of machining and the effect of test specimen location on the anticipated mechanical properties of the forging

    • Surface treatments for enhancing forging performance and life

    • Forging flaws and examples of service problems

    Manual 53 is both a practical and vital resource for design engineers; purchasing managers; manufacturers of pressure vessels, turbines, and generators; metallurgical engineers; university professors, and lawyers.
