"Over the past year, Black & Veatch has used our subscription to perform numerous online searches in the ASM Handbooks, Failure Analysis Center and Alloy Center online databases. On several occasions, it has literally saved hours of time for each search. In one instance, I spent ten minutes finding the requested information, and I'm not even sure I would have been able to find the information from other sources at all! While a few of our engineers have one or two ASM Handbooks for reference, the database allows faster searches and searches from multiple references. The information is excellent and the cost benefits far outweigh the cost of the service."

"I teach a course on failure analysis in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and we use the ASM Failure Analysis Database as our primary resource in the class. It contains excellent examples of various types of failure as well as concise descriptions of failure mechanisms. I actually teach from it and, since it contains the ASM Failure Analysis Handbook, I use it in place of any other required textbook for the class."
