ASM Handbook origins date back to the 1920s, when the society began to publish loose leaf heat treating datasheets. Since then, the distinct and recognizable green ASM Handbooks have evolved into the definitive resource on materials science and engineering for industry professionals. From properties of irons and steels to mechanical testing to medical devices, ASM Handbooks cover a range of topics and contain peer reviewed and time tested information that you can trust.
The new 2017 edition of Volume 18 is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource on surface engineering, lubrication, design, and materials selection strategies to improve the reliability and operational life of components. Engineers, researchers, analysts, materials scientists, and students will find in-depth practical insights, development trends, and solutions for improved engineering performance through informed materials selection, lubrication use, design, operation, and employment of surface treatments and coatings.
ASM Handbook, Volume 1A: Cast Iron Science and Technology is an in-depth and comprehensive reference for those who research, develop, process, make, use, analyze, or specify cast irons. Doru M. Stefanescu, Professor Emeritus from The University of Alabama and The Ohio State University, has gathered an international group of leading innovators, researchers, and practitioners in the cast iron field to create an invaluable reference for both practitioners and researchers.
The ASM Handbook series contains peer-reviewed, trusted information in every area of materials specialization. The series is the industry's best known and most comprehensive source of information on ferrous and nonferrous metals and materials technology and is packed with more than 30,000 pages of articles, illustrations, tables, graphs, specifications and practical examples for today's engineer.
This new ASM Handbook volume completes the series of volumes on the major technological subject of heat treating. This singular work gives engineers, analysts, and technicians a one-stop source on the wide variety of nonferrous alloys and provides more practical information to guide processing requirements and the necessary background information for those without extensive prior knowledge.
