This book should be a valuable reference for experienced metallurgists, mechanical engineers, and students seeking a practical technical introduction on metallurgy. Contents are based on lectures designed for undergraduate students in mechanical engineering, and the book is an excellent introduction on the fundamentals of applied metallurgy. The book also contains numerous graphs, tables, and explanations that can prove useful even for experienced metallurgist and researchers.
Contents cover both the fundamental and applied aspects of metallurgy. The first half of the book covers the basic principles of metallurgy, the behavior of crystalline materials, and the underlying materials concepts related to the mechanical properties of metals. The second half focuses on applied physical metallurgy. This includes coverage on the metallurgy of common alloys systems such as carbon steels, alloyed steels, cast iron, and nonferrous alloys.
