KarenI have in the past looked for information on mechanical testing and microstructural analysis of materials. While different books have the fundamental knowledge regarding various test methods and analysis techniques. There is hardly any information on how to analyze the data from various techniques. So a book/ series on data analysis would be helfpul, particularly for people in the starting phase of their careers. Regards

The following is from the back cover of the book.
Despite repeated assurances by the U.S. Department of Energy that security of weapons-grade nuclear material is invulnerable, Perilous Panacea describes how that security is breached by a computer wizard. Bankrolled by Iranians, enough plutonium and weapons-grade uranium is stolen to manufacture more-than ten atomic bombs. To manufacture the bombs, an expatriate Iranian nuclear engineer is blackmailed and two American scientists-a metallurgist and a chemist-are kidnapped. Chaos in the Washington corridors of power hinders the FBI pursuit of the missing nuclear material. For a nuclear catastrophe to be prevented, the scientists know they must escape … escape or die.
Thank you all for adding to my (already very large) reading list.And specifically to Ronald, for the book he wrote.I really think we should see more of those. This is how vocations are created.
I'm still on if someone wants to co-write something with me.And if you've got the occasion, watch the tv series 'Titanic : blood and steel'. The main protagonist is the shipwards metallurgist and there's a few nice scenes about metallurgy/metallography in that.
