Metallography of Steels: Interpretation of Structure and the Effects of Processing
Metallography of Steels: Interpretation of Structure and the Effects of Processing is a metallographic atlas that illustrates the structural diversity of cast irons and steels, while also serving as an introductory textbook and reference on the fundamentals of alloying, phase transformations, heat treatments, microstructure evolution, and property development. It discusses every stage of processing from casting to cold working, including solidification, annealing, quenching, forging, and rolling, and explains how thermal, chemical, and mechanical forces combine to produce the structures revealed in the associated metallographs. The book covers several types of steel, including structural, engineering, stainless, and advanced high-strength steels, along with the process-structure-property relationships that make them commercially viable. It also discusses common metallographic techniques. For information on the print version, ISBN 978-1-62708-148-1, follow this link.
