Properties and Selection: Nonferrous Alloys and Special-Purpose Materials
ASM Handbook, Volume 2 is a comprehensive guide to nonferrous metals and alloys. It provides detailed information on compositions, properties, selection, and applications of major alloy groups, with particular emphasis on aluminum, titanium, copper, and magnesium. A section on special-purpose materials examines alloys with outstanding magnetic and electrical properties, heat-resistant alloys, wear-resistant materials, shape memory alloys, and metal-matrix composites. Additional sections present manufacture and applications of materials used for superconductors, data compilations that describe the characteristics and properties of pure metals, recycling and reclaiming, and a detailed review of the toxic effects of metals. The volume contains 62 articles written by 150 technical experts and includes 1,800 illustrations and 1,200 tables.
