ASM Metal Handbook ( preface )ASM International is brief understanded as the American Society for Steel Treating (later the American Society for Metals, now ASM International) published a small collection of data sheets–the first edition of what became known as Metals Handbook. The series has developed over the years into a multivolume collection of reference books–each volume a thorough, comprehensive, and authoritative treatise on the subject to which it is devoted. The series–now titled ASM Handbook–continues to evolve and expand to serve the changing needs of metallurgy professionals throughout the world. The ASM Handbook series had grown to 20 current volumes. The Desk Edition was edited by Joseph R. Davis.
It’s expensive to get the files on the internet. But only 10$/each if you can contact to us.
The Metals Handbook Desk Edition is intended to serve as a comprehensive single-volume reference source on the properties, selection, processing, testing, and characterization of metals and their alloys. Although the information presented in this Volume is drawn principally from the 20 volumes of the ASM Handbook series, it should not be considered simply an abridged version of the larger work.
