This practical guide to product and process engineering of various aluminum castings emphasizes process and material characteristics; product-process-alloy integration; manufacturing aspects of aluminum casting; product design features; tooling design, feeding and gating design; product quality needs and specifications; product launches; and successful conversions of aluminum from steel and iron.
The theme for the November 2018 conference is "Failures Worth Analyzing." While technology advances fast and the market demands the latest and the greatest, successful companies strive to stay competitive and remain profitable.
ASM Handbook, Volume 2A is intended for users of aluminum alloys seeking information on the processes, capabilities, and variables in producing and fabricating aluminum products. Beginning with the classification and underlying physical metallurgy of aluminum alloys, this new handbook is a significant update and expansion of coverage on the technologies of aluminum casting, metalworking, composite processing, heat treating, surface treatment and joining.
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 35,000 pages of articles, illustrations, tables, graphs, specifications and practical examples for today's engineer.

This book is a combination of a metallographic atlas for steels and cast irons and an introductory textbook covering the fundamentals of phase transformations and heat treatment of these materials. Every important stage of processing, from casting to cold working is clearly discussed and copiously illustrated with metallographs that show the obtained structures, both desired and those achieved when deviations occur. A valuable companion even for experienced steel practitioners.
ASM Handbook, Volume 17 helps readers select, use, and interpret methods used to nondestructively test and analyze engineered products and assemblies. Digital technology is transforming the implementation of NDE and is covered extensively. New case studies and examples illustrate specific NDE techniques and give new insights which are needed to provide the data needed to solve many real-world NDE problems, to understand and measure early degradation, and to give the required data for remaining safe life or prognostic prediction

This book chronicles the development of metals as both an industrial activity and a science. Progress involving structural metals made possible the air, land, sea, and space travel of today, skyscrapers reaching over 100 stories high, and many other engineering accomplishments that continue to shape modern society. Readers will embark on a fascinating journey through the evolution of metals and metallurgy from the beginning of iron production in colonial times with the first iron plant in 1645 to the prevailing metals of the 21st century. Charles R. Simcoe wrote more than 40 articles for ASM International’s Advanced Materials & Processes magazine, including a monthly series entitled “Metallurgy Lane,” which became the basis for this book.
