Developed by the late metallurgy professor and master experimentalist Hubert I. Aaronson, this collection of lecture notes details the fundamental principles of phase transformations in metals and alloys upon which steel and other metals industries are based. Mechanisms of Diffusional Phase Transformations in Metals and Alloys is devoted to solid-solid phase transformations in which elementary atomic processes are diffusional jumps, and these processes occur in a series of so-called nucleation and growth through interface migration. Instead of relying strictly on a pedagogical approach, it documents the evolution of phase transformation concepts. The authors present topics by describing a phenomenon and then following up with a corresponding hypothesis or alternative explanation. In this way, the book also shows how the field continues to evolve and meet new challenges. Integrated with information from a number of key papers and review articles, this volume reflects this revered and influential instructor’s unique and passionate way of introducing well-established theories and knowledge in a systematic way, at the same time introducing, in great detail, how a new idea or interpretation of a phenomenon has emerged, evolved, and gained its current status. If the published version of a theory or a model was too condensed, Aaronson worked the problem out in painstaking detail so that graduate students could follow the derivations. This collection is full of such unique "Aaronsonian idiosyncrasies," which add immense value as a powerful tool for learning in this challenging materials field.

This work is a classic reference text for metallurgists, material scientists and crystallographers. The first edition was published in 1965. The first part of that edition was revised and re-published in 1975 and again in 1981. The present two-part set represents the eagerly awaited full revision by the author of his seminal work, now published as Parts I and II. Professor Christian was one of the founding fathers of materials science and highly respected worldwide. The new edition of his book deserves a place on the bookshelf of every materials science and engineering department. Suitable thermal and mechanical treatments will produce extensive rearrangements of the atoms in metals and alloys, and corresponding marked variations in physical and chemical properties. This book describes how such changes in the atomic configuration are effected, and discusses the associated kinetic and crystallographic features. It deals with areas such as lattice geometry, point defects, dislocations, stacking faults, grain and interphase boundaries, solid solutions, diffusion, etc. The first part covers the general theory while the second part is concerned with descriptions of specific types of transformations.

The book comprises three parts. Part 1 gives a historical description of the development of ironworking techniques since the earliest times. Part 2 is the core of the book and deals with the metallurgical basis of microstructures, with four main themes: phase diagrams, solidification processes, diffusion, and solid state phase transformations. Part 3 begins by an introduction to steel design principles. It then goes on to consider the different categories of steels, placing emphasis on their specific microstructural features. Finally, a comprehensive reference list includes several hundred pertinent articles and books. The book is the work of a single author, thus ensuring uniformity and concision. It is intended for scientists, metallurgical engineers and senior technicians in research and development laboratories, design offices and quality departments, as well as for teachers and students in universities, technical colleges and other higher education establishments.

The Distinguishing Characteristic Of A Metallurgist (Or Ceramist) Is An Ability To Work Effectively With Materials In Which The Properties Depend On The Microstructure Evolved Through Prior Treatment. These Effects Of Prior History Are Commercially Important And Usually Too Complex To Yield To Any Detailed Mathematical Analysis. This Book Provides An Introduction To The Concepts Used In Understanding The Evolution Of Microstructure. It Stems From A Two-Semester Course Taught To Juniors In Metallurgy Who Had Had A Prior Course Dealing With The Atomic Structure Of Solids, Simple Crystals, Defects, And The Existence Of Phase Diagrams. It Differs From The Several Books On Physical Metallurgy In That It Covers Fewer Topics In More Depth. The Sequence Has Been Chosen To Go From The Simpler To The More Complex. Thus The Material On Dislocations And Diffusion Covered In The First Chapters Is Used Again In Discussing Recovery And Solidification, The Nucleation And Solute Redistribution Concept Covered In Solidification Are Used Again In Treating Phase Transformation In Solids, Etc. The Order Of Chapters And Material Has Been Chosen To Allow The Introduction Of As Few New Concepts Per Chapter As Possible, And The Reinforcing Of These Concepts In The Students Mind By Using Them Again And Again In Subsequent Sections. This Learning By Using Probably Reaches An Extreme In The Case Of Phase Diagrams, Which Are Not Given The Customary Full Development In One Chapter But Are Introduced In Chap.4, And Then Used Extensively And Further Developed In Chaps.5, 6,7,And 8. In This Way The Material Is Presented Not In The Abstract But As An Essential Tool In Discussing Reactions Occurring At And Near Equilibrium.

Heat Treatment Of Steels As An Art To Improve Their Service Performance Has Been Practised Ever Since It Started To Be Used As Tools And Weapons.However, The Scientific Basis Of Heat Treatment Of Steels Became More Apparent Only In The First Half Of This Century And Still Some Gaps Remain In Its Complete Understanding.Earlier Books On Heat Treatment Of Steels Mainly Emphasised The Art And The Empirically Arrived Principles Of Heat Treatment. In The Last Few Decades, Our Understanding Of Phase Transformations And Mechanical Behaviour Of Steels, And Consequently Of Heat Treatment Of Steels, Has Considerably Increased.In This Book On Principles Of Heat Treatment Of Steels The Emphasis Is On The Scientific Principles Behind The Various Heat Treatment Processes Of Steels. Though It Is Expected That The Reader Has Sufficient Background In Phase Transformations And Mechanical Behaviour Of Materials, First Few Chapters Review These Topics With Specific Reference To Steels. Basic Principles Of Various Heat Treatment Processes Of Steels Including Surface Hardening Processes, Are Then Covered In Sufficient Detail To Give A Good Overall Understanding Of These Processes. The Detail Engineering Aspects Are, However, Omitted. These Are Easily Available In Various Handbooks On Heat Treatment. The Book Also Covers Heat Treatment Of Tool Steels And Cast Irons.The Book Has Been Well Written And Can Be Used A Textbook On Heat Treatment For Undergraduate Students. It Is Also A Good Reference Book For Teachers And Researchers In This Area And Engineers In The Industry.
