Engineering Physical Metallurgy


This book should be of particular aid to new engineering personnel, only recently engaged in industry, in coordinating their theoretical knowledge with the actual engineering practice they encounter and should also help them to better understand special treatises on physical metallurgy and heat treatment. More experienced engineers may use it to renew their theoretical knowledge on the subject.

The book may be expediently employed as supplementary reading by students of metallurgical and mechanical engineering institutes and technical schools attending courses in general physical metallurgy.

One aim of the author was to elucidate the latest developments made in engineering physical metallurgy, both in the Soviet Union and in other countries. Principal attention is given to the physical nature of the phenomena described.

The author does not claim to have made a complete exposition of all the aspects of physical metallurgy. His intention was merely to set forth the fundamentals of physical metallurgy and heat treatment of steel, cast iron, and nonferrous metals in a consecutive and easily understandable manner.
