This volume is a comprehensive reference source on the properties, selection, processing, testing, and characterization of metals and their alloys. Compiled principally from the ASM Handbook series, coverage is organized into five major parts. The first part features a collection of engineering property data and guidance on the structure and properties of metallic materials. It also includes articles covering engineering design and materials selection. The second part provides detailed coverage of the properties and selection of ferrous alloys and heat-resistant superalloys. Information is presented on irons, carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, and powder metallurgy steels. The third part covers nonferrous alloys and special-purpose materials such as metal-matrix composites and structural intermetallics. The fourth part addresses processing methods, including detailed information on casting, heat treating and joining. The final section covers testing, inspection, characterization, failure analysis, fractography, and metallography. The volume includes a comprehensive glossary of metallurgical and metalworking terms and definitions.
