Introduction to Metallurgy

The single most used material today in the Industry is Metal. The reason for the increased use of the metals is due to its wide range of properties: Lustre Hardness Low specific heat Plastic deformability Good thermal conductivity Relatively high melting point Strength Ductility Malleability Opaquity Stiffness Rigidity Formability Machinability Weldability Castability Dimensional stability Metals are found in nature in the form of ores.  The science of metallurgy includes deriving the metals from its ores, its purification, alloying with other metals and finally manufacture into shape and forms usable in…
