Book Summary of Introduction To Physical Metallurgy
The emphasis of the second edition of this text remains on the basic concepts and applications of physical metallurgy. The level of this edition is also essentially unchanged. The text is still considered appropriate for the teaching of physical metallurgy to students who are not major in metallurgy as well as to engineering students as an introductory course. It has also proved useful for technician training programs in industry
It covers some of the important tools and tests in the feild of metallurgy, the section on nondestructive testing has been expanded to include eddy current testing and holography.
It covers the fumdamentals of plastics deformation and the effect of heat on cold-worked materials remain essentially the same except for an expended discussion of dislocations and fracture.
It contains detailed explaination of the theory of age hardening, and more actual phase diagrams as illustrations.
The portins on stailness steels now encompases new sections on precipation- hardening stailness steels, maraging steels, and ausforming.
The section on cemented carbide tools has been expanded a new section on ceramic tools has been added.
Now covers only cast iron and has been enhanced by additional diagrams.
