..., the process whereby beryllium-copper alloys are commercially prepared should be discussed. The essence of the process (which is described in Chapter 14, “Alloying of Beryllium,” in this book) is the smelting of BeO, carbon, and copper in an electric arc furnace at close to 2000 °C (3630 °F). A beryllium...
