ASMD/HPAD/AHAD - Revision & Update to 347/348 Stainless Steel Chapter
Type 347 is a stabilized austenitic stainless steel that is widely used because of its resistance to sensitization. Type 348 is a modification of 347 in which the tantalum is restricted to a maximum of 0.10 percent for applications in the nuclear industry. The original chapter of these alloys was written in 1977. This update expands the data on these important alloys with additional data developed since the original chapter was written.

MPMD - New Data on 32 Materials Added to MPMD
The data is in the following four groups: Ceramics, Laminates/Composites, Metal Alloys/Semiconductors and Optical/Sensor Materials. The 32 new materials include Tellurene, Ti-6Al-4V, 301 austenitic stainless steel, zinc sulfide, zinc selenide and silica/phenolics. There are 65 properties in twelve property groups (thermophysical, thermoradiative, mechanical, electrical and optical, etc.). Some of the 65 properties are Specific Heat Capacity, Thermal Conductivity, Thermal Expansion, Thermal Diffusivity, Spectral Emissivity/Emittance, Spectral Transmittance, Young's Modulus, Shear Modulus, Poison?s Ratio, Tensile Strength, Bearing Strength, Compressive Strength, Shear Strength, Flexural Strength, Creep Strain, Fracture Toughness, Electrical Resistivity, and Refractive Index.

TPMD - 22 New Materials Added to TPMD
Data on 22 new materials in six material groups has been added to the TPMD. The data consists of 13 new properties including Thermal Linear Expansion, Thermal Conductivity, Thermal Diffusivity, Specific Heat Capacity, Density, Spectral Emittance, Spectral Transmittance and six others. The new materials include Tellurene, Ti-6Al-4V, Titanium Aluminide Carbide, Zinc Sulfide and Zinc Selenide. The data is found in the groups: Alloys (Titanium), Cermets, Composite Mixtures (Sulfides and their Mixtures), Selenides and Tellurides, and Semiconductors and Optical/Sensor Materials.

ASMD/HPAD/AHAD - Complete Revision and Update on Inconel 600 in ASMD/AHAD
This chapter is a new addition to the HPAD. Inconel alloy 600 is a non-age-hardened nickel-chromium alloy that is widely used because of its excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance. Inconel 600 is used extensively in the chemical industry and in nuclear power applications for various components as well as in the aerospace industry for exhaust liners, turbine seals and other components that require good oxidation resistance.
