During the last three decades, there have been dramatic changes in the steel industry in terms of the quality of products, processing technology, energy efficiency, labor productivity and environmental protection. The once prominent role of the metals industry in national economies is declining in industrialized countries to the point where fewer research engineers are employed in the industry.
The scope of this book is limited to selected topics within the field of Physical Chemistry of Iron and Steelmaking"that are relevant to reduction, refining and solidification steps in the steel industry. The authors, leaders in the field, have gathered the complex information regarding metallurgy in this collection to enable the next generation to take this branch of science, and the metals industry, to new heights. Graduate students and research engineers will find this book particularly useful, while practicing engineers, innovators and managers in technology developmentwill read and consult this book for inspiration and reference.
* Covers both equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena
* Projects challenges to be answered by current or future researchers and innovators in industry
* Each article reviews major achievements in scientific understanding on the subject

During the last thirty years, there have been dramatic changes in the steel industry in terms of the quality of products, processing technology, energy efficiency, and enviromental factors.
The foundation of pyrometallurgy and the major operations in the steel industry is high temperature physical chemistry. This book focuses on key topics that are relevant to the reduction, refining and solidification steps in the steel industry. It considers both equilibrium and non-equilibrum phenomena relevant to the processing of metals in general, and steel in particular, at high temperatures. The book is divided into three sections each including an overview by the editor.
