This textbook on metallurgy and materials is ideally used as an introductory book for both materials science and metallurgy courses and for students whose majors are closely related, such as quality control, machine tool technology, welding technology, and many others. Practical Metallurgy and Materials of Industry,Sixth Edition, includes many of the latest industry processes that change the physical and mechanical properties of materials and is highly recommended as a "materials processing" reference handbook in support of design, process, electrical, and chemical technicians and engineers. The book is intended to be easy to read. We make an effort to explain complex metallurgical terms in clear, practical language within the text. An extensive glossary is also included. Practical Metallurgy and Materials of Industry,Sixth Edition, establishes a solid foundation for understanding the behavior and characteristics of metals and materials as well as the practices for materials processing currently used in the metals and materials industry. The text also provides the student with a basic understanding of the mechanisms that cause material failures and those that prevent failures. The highly visual approach in this book uses graphics, drawings, illustrations, and photographs of actual equipment used to produce the alloy and/or perform specific processing operations during product manufacturing. Photomicrographs are often included to show the differences in metals when they are subjected to certain conditions such as heating, forming, or forging. A reinforcement approach to instruction is used throughout the book by building on previously covered information and by encouraging the student to read the material, use the worksheets, read the case problems, and complete the self-evaluation section at the end of each chapter. The format of the book is adaptable to the conventional lecture, lab, or individual approach to instruction. Objectives, chapter text, self-tests, and worksheets are intended to help both the student and the instructor: All are consistent in that testing is relevant to the objectives and discussions. The self-test review questions are aimed toward helping the student understand the material. For this purpose, answers to the self-evaluation review questions are found in the appendix. Multiple-choice posttest questions and keys for most chapters are provided in the Instructor's Manual that is available to any instructor using this textbook. Instructions are also given in the Instructor's Manual on how to set up a simple metallurgical laboratory and on utilizing the text in a variety of educational settings. It is our hope that students of metallurgy and materials science, machine tool technology, welding technology, quality control, manufacturing, and related technologies will become better prepared by understanding the manufacturing processes that influence the behavior of materials, as well as the materials with which they work.
