ASM Handbook Volume 4D is packed with information and kwledge for anyone who uses or works with heat treated steels or cast irons. Written and reviewed by recognized authorities, this new handbook gives you in-depth articles with details on the processing and properties for all significant applications and types of heat treated ferrous alloys. New content includes t only updates on new alloys, but also expanded coverage on the effects of heat treating on the properties for more carbon and low-alloy steels, tool steels, stainless steels, and other high-alloy grades. New articles also describe important topics such as stainless steel surface hardening, heat treatment of steel gears, bearings, boron steels, and precipitation hardening copper steels, and more. From the basic principles of design, steel selection, and the importance of metallurgical structure on properties, this new handbook can help you work out heat treating solutions.
