ASM Micrograph Database

Alternative Titles
ASM Micrograph Center
Description

The Micrograph Database is a comprehensive collection of more than 4,000 micrograph images and associated data for industrially important alloys. Information captured for each image includes material designation and composition, processing history, service history, metallographic preparation/technique, magnification, significance of the structures shown, selected materials properties data, and other relevant data. Users can examine images, look for typical or optimal structures, or compare the effects of alloying or heat treating regimes on microstructures.
