This well-established book, now in its Second Edition, presents the principles and applications of engineering metals and alloys in a highly readable form. This new edition retains all the basic topics such as phase diagrams, phase transformations, heat treatment of steels and nonferrous alloys, solidification, fatigue, fracture and corrosion covered in the First Edition. The text has been updated and rewritten for greater clarity. Also, more diagrams have been added to illustrate the concepts discussed. This Edition gives New Sections on : ac Thermoelastic martensite ac Shape memory alloys ac Rapid solidification processing ac Quaternary phase diagrams Intended as a text for undergraduate courses in Metallurgy/Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, this book is also suitable for students preparing for associate membership examination of Indian Institute of Metals (AMIIM), as well as other professional examinations like AMIE.Physical Metallurgy deals with the relationship between structure and properties of metals and alloys. ... It thus interfaces with the other areas of metallurgy such as process metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy and engineering metallurgy.
