Abstract : IN THE FIRST EDITION OF THE Air Weapons Materials Application Handbook, Metals and Alloys, an attempt was made to assemble pertinent and up-todate inf rmation on the properties of the alloys of primary importance for the design and production of air weapons. A total of 93 metals and alloys are contained in the first edition; 35 ferrous, 37 nonferrous alloys and 21 alloys used primarily for high temperature applications. The present Supplement to the first edition contains the data on 40 additional alloys; 17 ferrous, 8 nonferrous and 15 high temperature alloys with particular emphasis on refractory metals and alloys. To make the Supplement a self-contained entity, Part I of the first edition (General Discussion) is reproduced in its entirety. The format of Part II of the Supplement has been improved by adding the source reference of all data presented where possible, but no major changes have been made otherwise. A cross index of all alloys contained in the first edition, as well as in the Supplement is given in Part III. (Author)
