This volume provides new and expanded coverage on the metallurgy, processing, fabrication, properties, and performance of aluminum alloys. It is the companion volume of ASM Handbook, Volume 2A: Aluminum Science and Technology, released in 2018. The aluminum alloy datasheets are designed for easy look up with details on key alloy metallurgy, processing effects on properties, and fabrication characteristics. In addition, outreach was done to identify and collect information on new alloy developments.
