Metallography of Steels is released

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.

Selected Values of the Crystallographic Properties of the Elements is released

This reference book presents a unique and comprehensive review of the crystallographic properties of all the elements and will be a valuable resource for metallurgists and crytallographers. The crystallographic properties are evaluated at ambient pressure in order to provide a base line for high pressure studies. Lattice parameters of the elements are presented as a function of temperature and related properties such as thermal expansion coefficients, molar volumes, and densities are provided. Special attention is given to ensure that the selected values correspond to the latest values of atomic weights and the fundamental constants.
