Smithells is the only single volume that provides all the data and references needed by those practicing metallurgy. The seventh edition of this standard reference work for metallurgists includes important new chapters on powder metallurgy and superconductivity. All chapters have been thoroughly revised to bring them up to date with developments since the last edition in 1983. In all this is the most complete compendium of information for industrial and theoretical metallurgists, and it is now available in a more accessible format including current data to 1997.
Also available is Smithells Light Metals Handbook (ISBN 0750636254).
