I have to build a small training course about the use of materials (in construction and manufacturing) and their advantages and disadvantages (resistance to heat, price, easyness of forming,etc.) in comparison to steel (carbon or stainless steel).
I found several documents but it is often too technical and detailled. If someone can give any nice web resources on this topic it would be nice.
