  • Contents

Includes expanded coverage of COLOR metallography. More than 70 pages are in full color--eight times the amount in the previous edition!

Metallography and Microstructures, Volume 9 of the ASM Handbook, is an essential reference for anyone who specifies, performs, monitors, evaluates, or uses metallurgical analyses for production quality control, research, or educational training. The new edition is a comprehensive reference that features over 30 new articles with substantive updates on metallographic techniques and microstructural interpretation. Expanded and new coverage includes:

New articles on field metallography, digital imaging, and quantitative image analysis, quantitative metallography, and color metallography

All-new articles on the metallography and microstructural interpretation of cast irons, carbon and low-alloy steels, aluminum alloys, precious-metal alloys, titanium alloys, ceramics, and thermal spray coatings

Substantially revised articles on metallography and microstructural interpretation of tool steels, stainless steels, copper alloys, powder metallurgy alloys, and cemented carbides

Hundreds of new micrographs throughout the volume

More integrated in-text citation of micrograph images with respect to discussions on preparation techniques and alloy metallurgy

Updated coverage on specimen-preparation techniques for both manual methods and semi-automatic machines

Practical coverage on sectioning and specimen extraction

New and revised articles on structures from solidification and solid-state transformations

Laboratory safety guide

New expanded color section

Metallography and Microstructures is undoubtedly an essential reference for anyone with an interest in the analysis of metals.
