| About The Book Physical Metallurgy
This well-established book, now in its Third Edition, presents the principles and applications of engineering metals and alloys in a highly readable form. This new edition retains all the basic topics covered in earlier editions such as phase diagrams, phase transformations, heat treatment of steels and nonferrous alloys, shape memory alloys, solidification, fatigue, fracture and corrosion, as well as applications of engineering alloys. A new chapter on ‘Nanomaterials’ has been added (Chapter 8). The field of nano-materials is interdisciplinary in nature, covering many disciplines including physical metallurgy.
Intended as a text for undergraduate courses in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, the book is also suitable for students preparing for associate membership examination of the Indian Institute of Metals (AMIIM) and other professional examinations like AMIE.
