ASM Handbook, Volume 4E: Heat Treating of Nonferrous Alloys

edited by George E. Totten

ASM Handbook, Volume 4E: Heat Treating of Nonferrous Alloys completes the series of fives volumes on the major technological subject of heat treating. This singular work gives engineers, analysts, and technicians a one-stop source on the wide variety of nonferrous alloys and provides more practical information to guide processing requirements and the necessary background information for those without extensive prior knowledge. Get the basics on heat treating with significantly expanded coverage on nonferrous alloys. In-depth articles provide details on the heat treating principles and practices of aluminum, copper, nickel, and titanium alloys. Quenching, distortion, residual stresses, and alloying effects are given special focus, and attention is given to the complexities of aging practices and microstructural development for the major and less common types of nonferrous alloys. Other ASM Handbook volumes in the heat treating series are: Volume 4A: Steel Heat Treating Fundamentals and Processes, Volume 4B: Steel Heat Treating Technologies, Volume 4C: Induction Heating and Heat Treatment, Volume 4D: Heat Treating of Irons and Steels


ASM Handbook, Volume 6A: Welding Fundamentals and Processes

edited by Thomas J. Lienert; Sudarsanam Suresh Babu; Thomas A. Siewert; Viola L. Acoff

ASM Handbook, Volume 6A: Welding Fundamentals and Processes is a focused revision of the welding process information in the 1993 Volume 6: Welding, Brazing, and Soldering. The new volume expands on the fundamental principles of welding, including heat transfer, solidification, residual stress and distortion, and has an all-new section on modeling and simulation of welding processes. Articles cover all welding processes, from the workhorse methods of arc and resistance welding, to newer methods like friction stir welding and laser beam welding, to specialty methods like explosive welding and ultrasonic welding. One-third of the articles are all-new, and welding articles from the 1993 edition have been updated and expanded, making this volume the most complete reference source anywhere on welding fundamentals and processes. All articles are expert-written and peer reviewed. From theory to practice, the book is a comprehensive resource for evaluating and selecting welding methods, working with vendors, understanding how processing variables affect welding outcomes, and more. Audience Because welding is used across a broad range of industries, materials, and applications, this book will be valuable to plant and construction engineers, welding practitioners, managers, sales professionals, professors, students, welding artists, and hobbyists. Eight major sections: Fundamentals of Fusion Welding Fundamentals of Solid-State Welding Arc Welding Processes Resistance Welding Processes High Energy Electron Beam and Laser Beam Welding Solid-State Welding Processes Fundamentals of Weld Modeling Safety


 ASM Handbook, Volume 9: Metallography And Microstructures

edited by  George F. Vander Voort (Author, Editor)

Volume 9 is an indispensable reference for anyone who specifies, performs, monitors, evaluates, or uses metallurgical analyses for production quality control, research, or educational training. This edition provides important updates and new information reflecting the substantial changes in automation, equipment, consumable products and preparation methodology, as well as new metals, alloys and manufacturing technologies that have emerged since 1985. Expanded coverage of color metallography is provided, including more than 70 pages in full color.
