Treatise on Process Metallurgy, Volume 3: Industrial Processes
Process Metallurgy provides academics with the fundamentals of the manufacturing of metallic materials, from raw materials into finished parts or products.
Coverage is divided into three volumes, entitled FUNDAMENTAL PROCESS METALLURGY, encompassing process fundamentals, extractive and refining processes, metallurgical process phenomena; TYPES OF PROCESSING, encompassing ferrous processing; non-ferrous processing; refractory-, reactive and aquaeous processing of metals; and SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS, encompassing process modelling and computational tools; energy optimisation; environmental aspects; and industrial design.
The work distils 400+ years combined academic experience from the principal editor and multi-disciplinary 14-member editorial advisory board, providing the 2,608pp work with a seal of quality.
The Work will function as the process counterpart to Robert Cahn and Peter Haasenâs famous reference family, Physical Metallurgy (1996) - which excluded process metallurgy from consideration - and which is currently undergoing a major revision under the editorship of David Laughlin and Kazuhiro Hono (publishing 2014). Nevertheless process and extractive metallurgy are fields within their own right and this work will be of interest to libraries supporting courses in the process area.
For teaching and research faculty, upper level undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral research associates in metallurgy and materials science and technology and related areas of study (physics, chemistry and biomedical science) as well as researchers and staff members of government and industrial research laboratories. Particularly useful for more experienced research workers who require an overview of fields comparatively new to them, or with which they wish to renew contact after a gap of some years.
