Full Description

The most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume reference on nonferrous metals and alloys. Provides detailed information on major alloy groups, with particular emphasis on aluminum, titanium, copper, and magnesium. New topics include recycling, superconductors, metal-matrix composites, and intermetallics.

1,00 illustrations and 1,200 tables. Sections include:
  • Specific Metals and Alloys,
  • Special Purpose-Alloys,
  • Superconducting Materials,
  • Pure Metals,
