Steels: Processing, Structure, and Performance

Author:
This book is a comprehensive guide to the broad, dynamic physical metallurgy of steels.

Contents include: the interrelationships between chemistry, processing, structure, and performance--the elements of physical metallurgy--are integrated for all the types of steel; the evolution, characterization, and performance of steel microstructures are described, with increased emphasis on deformation and fracture; thermal processing and its effect on steels; low carbon sheet steels, together with strengthening mechanisms, developments in microalloyed forging steels, steels with bainitic and a variety of ferritic microstructures, quench and tempered steel performance, high-carbon steels for rail and ultra-high strength wire, and the causes of low toughness and embrittlement are all discussed.

Principles, concepts, and understanding of microstructural evolution and performance, within the framework of processing and properties, are illustrated, by plots of data, micrographs and schematic diagrams.

This volume is an essential reference for anyone who makes, uses, studies, or designs with steel.
