Papers included in "Powder Metallurgy Alloys and Particulate Materials for Industrial Applications," proceedings of the 2000 TMS Fall Meeting describe material requirements for use in a variety of industrial applications, such as materials processing, manufacturing, energy production, and pollution control. The book, published by The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS), Warrendale, PA, discusses how powder metallurgy materials can meet the performance needs of these applications.
