  • Description
  • Contents

A unique and invaluable book designed for practising designers and engineers, the book presents the principles, methods and practices of heat treatment of steels, associated furnaces, and other equipments and applications.

The various types of steels are discussed along with the heat treatment operations for each type. Also discussed is the control of heat treatment processes, right from inspection of incoming steels and process control to quality control of finished parts. Different types of case hardening methods and their applications are outlined along with the problems that may be encountered on the shopfloor and the solutions. Also covered are flame and induction hardening of steels.

A unique feature is the large number of data sheets provided giving the chemical composition, physical and mechanical properties and the general characteristics of steels and their corresponding international standard grades. Also, given are the heat treatment procedures and sequence of manufacturing operations.

With its comprehensive coverage and wealth of practical data and guidelines, the book would be indispensable to heat treaters, planning engineers, material engineers, production engineers and students of metallurgy and production engineering.
