Chemical Metallurgy (Characterization of Materials) kindle –

Written by a team of specialist authors under the direction of Professor John Moore, head of the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at Colorado School of Mines, this book presents the subject of chemical metallurgy using a direct approach, and goes a stage further than other books by including a chapter on bonding and periodicity The text provides an understanding of the fundamental chemical principles and demonstrates the application of these principles to process metallurgy, materials synthesis and processing, and corrosion protection Each chapter is supported by the most significant references or further reading list, and added problems with solutions are given to illustrate the subject for the student The text has been fully updated for this second edition, and a new a chapter on slag chemistry has been addedDr Moore is Professor and Head of the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department and Director of the Materials Science Program at the Colorado School of Mines He has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Surrey and a PhD from the University of Birmingham, England His research interests include synthesis and processing of materials as well as engineering materials and coatings He is a Chartered Engineer European professional engineer , a fellow of The Institute of Materials, ASM International, and the American Ceramic Society a member of the Metallurgical Society of AIME, Materials Research Society, America Vacuum Society, and Sigma Xi an overseas member of the Surface Engineering Committee, Institute of Materials UK , and has been the organizing chairman of numerous international conferences
