As already advised in our revised and rewritten
Metals Knowledge page, the ambitious program of building your Materials Encyclopedia Online continues here with Part 2.

Part 1 can be found at  Bulletin_117.

Once organized in folders identified with meaningful titles, the authoritative body of knowledge gathered in this way will prove invaluable for study and reference.

Readers can develop their Encyclopedia along additional and different lines, according to their interests and needs, beyond what is given here as an initial selection to serve general information purposes.

Mid April Bulletin

April 2016 - Resources on Metals  P. 2 - Bulletin_118

PWL#152B - Bulletin_118: Resources on Steel, Structural Materials, Standard Reference, High Strength Steel, Automotive Design Manual, High-Strength Low-Alloy Steels, Applications, Specifications, Mil-Standard, Comparison of Steel Standards, Chemical Compositions, European Standards, Performance of High Strength Steels, Microalloyed Constructional Steels, TRIP Steels, Bainite in Steels, Reinforcing Steel Data, Tool Steel, Standard Pipe Schedules, Production and Process Piping, Heat Treating of Steels and much more...

It is strongly recommended to review the main headings that follow the introductory remarks of the previous Bulletin_117 and to continue building the Encyclopedia.

it may become your  reference manual for learning the fundamentals of technology and also for solving all kind of practical problems.

Site Map

We used to remind to our readers titles and links to our informative pages on:

  • welding basics,
  • welding processes,
  • welding materials and
  • other welding related subjects.
We are informed that publishing a list of internal links in website pages, is judged as objectionable practice by companies that grade the relevance of the page content to users' usefulness. Therefore, in an effort to comply with the above requirement, we remove the usual list appearing in this location, and urge our readers to use the Site Map to locate the pages that might provide them the answers to their questions.
