Volume 1 addresses the selection and application of ferrous metals and alloys, including cast irons, carbon and low-alloy steels, tool steels, stainless steels, and nickel and cobalt-base superalloys. As the lead volume in the Handbook series, it lays the groundwork for understanding the hierarchical nature of metals and how to leverage the underlying process, structure, property, performance relationships that define them. The volume draws on the knowledge and insight of more than 200 experts with experience in materials-centric product design, manufacturing, and quality control. It contains more than 1,300 illustrations (photographs, charts, and graphs) and over 500 tables filled with alloy designation, composition, and mechanical and physical property data.
