CRC Materials Science and Engineering Handbook – James F. Shackelford, William Alexander – 3rd Edition


The CRC and , Third Edition is the most comprehensive source available for data on engineering materials. Organized in an easy-to-follow format based on materials properties, this definitive reference features data verified through major professional societies in the materials field, such as ASM International and the American Ceramic Society. The third edition has been significantly expanded, most notably by the addition of new tabular material for a wide range of nonferrous alloys and various composite materials.

For making, selecting, or evaluating materials, this one, compact volume provides the ideal starting point. It is exceptionally easy to search-the authors have organized it according to materials properties, provided a key word indexing , and placed many data sets in a convenient Selection Section where materials can be compared by property value, a feature ideal for applications.

A bestseller since its first edition, the CRC and Engineering Handbook stands alone as a the consummate reference for data on the full spectrum of engineering materials.
