Failure Investigation of Boiler Tubes: A Comprehensive Approach
Chapter 3: Metallurgy of Steels and Related Boiler Tube Materials
This chapter describes the metallurgy, composition, and properties of steels and other alloys. It provides information on the atomic structure of metals, the nature of alloy phases, and the mechanisms involved in phase transformations, including time-temperature effects and the role of diffusion, nucleation, and growth. It also discusses alloying, heat treating, and defect formation and briefly covers condenser tube materials.
