Unformatted text preview: reflecting the contents of these sections. In the present edition, the Plastics section, formerly a separate thumb tab, has been incorporated into the Properties of Materials section. A major task in assembling this edition has been the expansion and reorganization of the index. For the first time, most of the many Standards referenced in the Handbook are now included in the index. The American Standards Association was reconstituted in August 1969 as the United States of America Standards Institute, and standards that had been approved as American Standards were designated as USA Standards. In October 1969, the name was changed to the American National Standards Institute. Thus, the designation of present standards is ANSI instead of ASA or USAS. Standards originally adopted by the American Standards Association and not revised are still referred to in the Handbook by the designation ASA. ANSI Standards are copyrighted by the American National Standards Institute, West 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017, from whom current copies may be purchased. Many of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standards that deal with mechanical engineering, extracts from which are included in the Handbook, are produced by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and we are grateful for their permission to quote extracts and to update the information contained in the standards, based on the revisions regularly carried out by the ASME. Information regarding current editions of any of these Standards can be obtained from ASME International, Three Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016. Users who call possible defects to the attention of the editors, or the omission of some matter that is considered to be of general value, often render a service to the entire manufacturing field. We desire to increase the usefulness of the Handbook as far as possible, so all criticisms and suggestions about revisions, omissions, or inclusion of new material are welcome. Christopher J.
