For first courses in metallurgy and materials science. Here is a straightforward, clearly-written introduction whose three-part organization makes an understanding of metals-and how they "work"-truly accessible. Text coverage encompasses principles, applications, and testing. The Technology of Metallurgy focuses on providing students with an understanding of the fundamentals of metals, and of what happens when they are cold worked, heat treated, and alloyed. Mathematics is limited to algebra and trigonometry; calculus is used only when necessary for understanding. For courses with a laboratory component, appendixes provide background concepts for conducting basic tests; and the accompanying Instructor's Manual contains outlines for laboratory sessions.
