Steels represent the most widely-used metallic alloy, possessing a wide range of microstructures and mechanical properties. By examining the mechanical properties of steels in conjunction with microstructure this book provides a valuable description of the development and behaviour of these materials - the very foundation of their widespread use. Updated throughout and including new chapters on nanostructured steels, and new alloys and technologies for the energy and automobile industries, the book is clearly written and illustrated, with extensive bibliographies and real-life examples. An essential reference, both compact and readily comprehensive, for metallurgists and engineers in both industry and academia.

  • Covers the microstructure, mechanical behaviour and properties of steels, the most widely-used metallic alloy
  • Thoroughly updated with new materials and technologies
  • Respected author team who bring their wide experience to students and professionals

The complete text and reference on the microstructure and properties of steels

From the Back Cover:

The complete text and reference on the microstructure and properties of steels

Steel has the wonderful ability to adapt to changing requirements. It is no wonder that it has seen off challenges from many other materials, and thrives today as arguably the most successful of all engineering materials.

By examining the properties of iron and its alloys in conjunction with microstructure, this book provides a valuable guide to the development and behaviour of these metals. Updated throughout, this edition includes new material on nanostructured steels, new alloys and technologies for the energy and automobile industries, including TRIP-assisted alloys and the latest impressive creep and heat-resistant steels for increased power generation efficiency.

· Covers the microstructure, mechanical behaviour and properties of steels, the most widely-used metallic alloy
· Thoroughly updated with new materials and technologies
· Respected author team who bring their wide experience to students and professionals

Steels is an essential reference for metallurgists, physicists and engineers in both industry and academia.
