Materials Properties

Learning how to use the items listed in this guide

Either e-format or the print is sufficient for "learning" how to proceed through materials science or another similar course, such as metallurgy, welding, fabrication, senior design. Search for materials properties based on the material. Metals then are grouped as steels (known also as ferrous) and non-steels (known also as non-ferrous) such as copper, aluminum, beryllium and so on. Or search by the designation code assigned such as C26000. 

Searching the e-format is preferred by most students. Searching print by the index volume may be preferred for one just learning how to use the ASTM, ASM, and SAE Handbook. SAE Handbook is print only, we do not have e-format. The print format of the SAE Handbook is located in the basement, 629.102 S111 2005 volumes 1-3.
