Materials and Environment - New book entry and link for extensive online reviewing.

Well worth a mention:
Materials Engineering Science Processing and Design by Ashby,Shercliff & Cebon, renowned specialists in the field of Materials Selection and Environment, may be extensively reviewed with a view to acquisition at the link provided (scribd) I have added the link in my side bar entitled Materials and Environment.

For readers of this post a convenient link is Materials Engineering Science Processing and Design

Alternative links for extensive reviewing from  Google Books


Materials Science and Technology -Edited by Maney Press, Leeds,UK for IOM3

Materials Science and Technology Up-date:
This highly reputable peer reviewed journal is published monthly.

The journal covers fundamental and technological aspects of the properties, characterisation, modelling, processing, and fabrication of engineering materials, with a particular interest in microstructure–property–processing relationships. Now the full archives from its first issue on January 1985 to date are available online.  At present all papers from 1st of January 1990 are freely available to members of The Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining: Logo below:
Meet the author via his seminal paper in Materials Science and Technology:
Optimizing deoxidation and desulphurization during vacuum induction melting of alloy 718

pp. 167-170(4)  Author: Alexander, J.

This paper marked an important step in improved quality and cost of premium quality, superalloys for aeroengine hot parts. It was a first in qualifying recycled alloy for use in aeroengine for civil aircraft use. (in 1985 a military aeroengine was required to withstand 5000hrs in service, whereas aero engines in civilian -passenger aircraft were required to withstand 50 000hrs in service, a factor of 10, a full order of magnitude.
