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 development will read and consult this book for inspiration and reference. It covers both equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena. It 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.
