Steels remain the most widely used metallic materials. By examining the mechanical properties of steels in conjunction with microstructure the first edition gave a clear description of the development and behaviour of these materials - the very foundation of their widespread use. This new edition more explicitly links this theory with applications whilst retaining the style and purpose of the original. The text is updated throughout and includes three new chapters on acicular ferrite; the control of microstructures during welding; and a further chapter on the modelling of steel microstructure to achieve optimum performance. Extensive bibliographies are also included. Steel metallurgists in both industry and academia will find this book invaluable.
* A comprehensive introduction to the microstructure and properties of steels.
* Clearly written and well illustrated.
* Extensive bibliographies.

Newly revised and updated to incorporate advances in the field of steel metallurgy this second edition provides an even more in-depth examination of the explicit links between the mechanical properties of steel and its microstructure. New chapters on emerging topics such as acicular ferrite, the control of microstructure during welding and the modelling of steel microstructure and properties make this the most up-to-date reference for both metallurgy students and professionals available today.About the Author:
Harry Bhadeshia is the Tata Steel Professor of Physical Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge, UK. His research is concerned with the theory of solid-state transformations in metals, particularly multicomponent steels, with the goal of creating novel alloys and processes with the minimum use of resources. He is the author or co-author of more than 600 research papers and six books on the subject. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Engineering (India) and the American Welding Society. In 2015 Professor Bhadeshia was appointed a Knight Bachelor in the Queen's 2015 Birthday Honours for services to Science and Technology.
