Metallurgy Fundamentals provides the student with instruction on the basic properties, characteristic, and production of the major metal families. Clear, concise language and numerous illustrations make this an easy-to-understand text for an introductory course in metallurgy. Over 450 tables, diagrams, and photographs show both the theoretical and practical aspects of metallurgy.

Powder metallurgy literature in the English language includes a large number of books and several thousand articles in various journals. The rate of growth of this literature increases from year to year. It covers well the whole field of powder metallurg- materials, processes and products - with two exceptions: friction and antifriction branches of powder metallurgy. This lack of information has nothing to do with scientific or technical considerations, and definitely has nothing to do with lack of initiative in the development of these materials. The industry concerned with the production of friction and antifriction materials is continually developing new products and techniques and produc tion is steadily growing. However, most companies working on these materials regard their experiences and new advancements as "proprietary" and, for competitive reasons, are not interested in publishing in the technical literature except for very perfunctory and usually highly commercial papers. Very little work on fric tion and antifriction materials is going on in independent labora tories and university laboratories, although fundamental studies in this field offer very interesting aspects.

Using modern technology the process of producing steel can be divided into two steps. All further steps required to produce a high-grade steel take place exclusively in the ladle. Such ladle metallurgy is called secondary metallurgy. This book is designed for people working in the business of secondary metallurgy: engineers, metallurgists, researchers and students.

As product specifications become more demanding, manufacturers require steel with ever more specific functional properties. As a result, there has been a wealth of research on how those properties emerge during steelmaking. Fundamentals of metallurgy summarises this research and its implications for manufacturers. The first part of the book reviews the effects of processing on the properties of metals with a range of chapters on such phenomena as phase transformations, types of kinetic reaction, transport and interfacial phenomena. Authors discuss how these processes and the resulting properties of metals can be modelled and predicted. Part two discusses the implications of this research for improving steelmaking and steel properties. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Fundamentals of metallurgy is an invaluable reference for steelmakers and manufacturers requiring high-performance steels in such areas as automotive and aerospace engineering. It will also be useful for those dealing with non-ferrous metals and alloys, material designers for functional materials, environmentalists and above all, high technology industries designing processes towards materials with tailored properties. Summarises key research and its implications for manufacturers Essential reading for steelmakers and manufacturers Written by leading experts from both industry and academia

Water-based techniques are widely used in minerals processing to separate valuable minerals and ore from less desirable materials. This comprehensive technical reference provides an overview of aqueous metallurgy and its applications in mineral processing operations. The text presents the physicochemical principles of various water-based processes. Written as a text for college- and graduate-level instruction, the book presents the fundamental principles of water-based metallurgy. The author has taught these topics at the college level for more than 30 years, and this book summarizes his lecture notes and vast experience in mineral processing science. It is a valuable reference for those studying mineral processing, resource recovery, and the corrosion of metals and alloys. In addition, it's a practical reference for environmental and chemical engineers, chemists, and mineral processing engineers who are responsible for mineral processing plant design and operations. To enhance learning and provide practical experience, each chapter closes with a series of homework problems based on the various concepts presented. Solutions to the problems, including full explanations, are provided at the back of the book.
