• 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.
