This volume provides new and expanded coverage on the metallurgy, processing, fabrication, properties, and performance of aluminum alloys. It is the companion volume of ASM Handbook, Volume 2A: Aluminum Science and Technology, released in 2018. The aluminum alloy datasheets are designed for easy look up with details on key alloy metallurgy, processing effects on properties, and fabrication characteristics. In addition, outreach was done to identify and collect information on new alloy developments.
Come join others for a classroom presentation of ASM’s Principles of Failure Analysis. This course is designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice of failure analysis. A comprehensive overview of the field, this course covers three principal areas of interest: Procedures for Analysis, Failure Mechanisms and Failure in Product Forms and Components. Many case histories of failures and their elimination are highlighted throughout the course. Instructors typically have between 10 and 35 years of experience, and there will be time for discussion and questions throughout the training.
This landmark publication distills the body of knowledge that characterizes mineral processing and extractive metallurgy as disciplinary fields. It will inspire and inform current and future generations of mineral processing and extractive metallurgy professionals. Two-volume set.
A speedy source for qualified electrical and magnetic property data for metals. KEY FEATURES: The data tables are arranged by material hierarchy. Values are given for both low and high temperatures.
This convenient source has definitions, synonyms, abbreviations, and conversion factors for both mechanical and physical properties. For ease of use, all pertinent information, including foreign names and parameters, is grouped onto one single page.
Come join others for a classroom presentation of ASM’s Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgist. We will briefly discuss all aspects of metallurgy, including extraction, processing, manufacturing, mechanical properties, heat treatment, and corrosion. Instructors typically have between 10 and 35 years of experience, and there will be time for discussion and questions throughout the training.

Bearings: Basic Concepts and Design Applications provides a modern study of bearing types, design factors, and industrial examples. The major classes of bearings are described, and design concepts are covered for rolling elements, surfaces, pivots, flexures, and compliance surfaces. Fluid film lubrication is presented, and the basics of tribology for bearings is explained. The book also looks at specific applications of bearing technology, including bearings in vehicles, rotating machinery, machine tools, and home appliances. Case studies are also included.

The second edition of a bestseller, this book introduces tribology in a way that builds students’ knowledge and understanding. It includes expanded information on topics such as surface characterization as well as recent advances in the field. The book provides additional descriptions of common testing methods, including diagrams and surface texturing for enhanced lubrication, and more information on rolling element bearings. It also explores surface profile characterization and elastic plastic contact mechanics including wavy surface contact, rough surface contact models, friction and wear plowing models, and thermodynamic analysis of friction.
