Summary and Info
This book is a comprehensive guide to the selection and applications of copper and copper alloys, which constitute one of the largest and most diverse families of engineering materials. The handbook includes all of the essential information contained in the 20-volume ASM Handbook series, as well as important reference information and data from a wide variety of ASM publications and industry sources. In addition to extensive property data for wrought, cast, and powder-metallurgy products, this book provides practical information on the casting, forming, joining, machining, and finishing of copper alloys. The principles of physical metallurgy, including the relationships among heat treatment, structure, and properties, are also examined. Specifications for copper and its alloys are cross referenced in useful tabular form. Recent alloy developments such as low-lead free-machining alloys, high-strength alloys with resistance to corrosion in hot "sour" environments, and thermally stable, high-conductivity electronic packaging materials, are also reviewed.
