The History of Metals in America

Frances Richards, Charles Simcoe
  • Book
  • B-ASM-046
Published 2018-01-01 by ASM International in United States

The History of Metals in America 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.

Transformations: Selected Works of G.B. Olson on Materials, Microstrucutre, and Design

C. E. Campbell, M. V. Manuel, W. Xiong
  • Book
  • B-ASM-047
Published 2017-01-01 by ASM International in United States
ASM International and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS) have collaborated to present a collection of the selected works of Dr. Greg B. Olson in honor of his 70th birthday in 2017. This collection highlights his influential contributions to the understanding of martensite transformations and the development and application of a systems design approach to materials. Part I: Martensite, with an Introduction by Sir Harry Bhadeshia, emphasizes Dr. Olson's work to develop a dislocation theory for martensite transformations, to improve the understanding of the statistical nature of martensite nucleation, and to expand use of quantitative microscopy to characterize phase transformations. Part II: Materials Design, with an Introduction by Dr. Charles Kuehmann, focuses on the application of a systems design approach to materials and the development of integrated computational design curriculum for undergraduate education. Part II includes several examples of the systems design approach to a variety of applications. The papers chosen for this collection were selected by the editors with input from Dr. Olson.

Engineering Properties of Magnesium Alloys

ASM International-Charles J. Moosbrugger
  • Book
  • B-ASM-049
Published 2017-01-01 by ASM International in United States

Magnesium and magnesium alloys provide unique properties for engineering applications. Magnesium alloys are popular as a structural material because of their combination of light weight and strength. They are desirable for portable tools, appliances, electronic devices, airplanes, space vehicles, and land transportation.


Steels: Processing, Structure, and Performance, Second Edition

George Krauss
  • Book
  • B-ASM-045
Published 2015-02-01 by ASM International in United States
In the second edition of this best-selling book, new information and references are integrated into chapters. Emphasis is still on processing, alloying, microstructure, deformation, fracture and properties of major steel types ranging from low-carbon sheet steels, pearlitic rail and wire steels, to quench and tempered medium- and high-carbon martensitic steels. Microstructural aspects of steelmaking, hardenability, tempering, surface hardening, and embrittlement phenomena are updated, and chapters on stainless and tool steels remain in the second edition. The work is intended to be tutorial and is an essential state-of-the-art reference for anyone that makes, uses, studies and designs with steel.

Titanium: Physical Metallurgy, Processing, and Applications

  • Book
  • B-ASM-044
Published 2015-01-01 by ASM International in United States
This new book covers all aspects of the history, physical metallurgy, corrosion behavior, cost factors and current and potential uses of titanium. The history of titanium is traced from its early beginnings through the work of Kroll, to the present day broadening market place. Extensive detail on extraction processes is discussed, as well as the various Beta to Alpha transformations and details of the powder metallurgy techniques. The relationship of microstructure to mechanical properties, and the topic of corrosion are described in detail. A comprehensive section presents applications of titanium. Anyone involved in any aspect of titanium science, technology, or application (including personnel in industry, government, and academia) can benefit from this book.

Relational Analysis, Guidelines for Estimating the High- and Low-Temperature Properties of Metals

  • Book
  • B-ASM-037
Published 2011-11-01 by ASM International in United States
Relational analysis, defined as quantitative analysis of the relationships of high- and low-temperature properties in relation to their room-temperature values, provides a useful technique for estimating the properties of similar metals and alloys for which limited or no data are available. This book demonstrates how to use relational analysis methodology to extrapolate and estimate properties of metallic alloys at high temperatures from lower temperature data, and for estimating the properties of alloys for which scant property data exists. Data tables and graphs are presented for a wide range of aluminum alloys. Also shown, is how to apply relational analysis to other alloy systems including steels, magnesium alloys, and titanium alloys.
