ASM Handbook, Vol. 2B: Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys
Product No. OS1902; Published 2019, ASM International; ISBN: 978-1-62708-208-2 Hardcover, 650 pages.
In Vol 2B of the ASM Handbook series, the effects of alloy metallurgy, processing, and structure are described in detail for mechanical properties in design, fatigue and fracture resistance, corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking, and friction and wear.
Volume 2B also includes new and expanded datasheets for over 120 specific grades or variations of commercial aluminum alloys. Datasheets detail the product forms, applications, specification designations, fabrication characteristics, heat treatment, and typical and specification properties of alloys. Coverage includes comparative informative with competitive or common (incumbent) alloys.
Volume 2B also includes a major review on the history and development of wrought aluminum alloys and updated content on new high-integrity die casting alloys for structural and light-weighting applications. Volume 2B is an excellent companion to ASM Handbook, Volume 2A: Aluminum Science and Technology. This book is shipped directly from ASM International.
