Review quote

"... a major work, with an impressive list of relevant contributors on topics ranging from the basics to the latest developments, and from mineral processing to steel performance in service. ... an invaluable resource for companies and research centers concerned with steels."
-Dr. Andy Howe, Editor, Materials Science & Technology, and Consultant, Beta Technology Ltd., Doncaster, UK


"There is a great amount of knowledge available in the industrial world; however, to obtain updated and reliable knowledge in the field of metallurgical science and engineering becomes more complex. The Encyclopedia of Iron, Steel, and Their Alloys represents a remarkable effort to provide to engineers and metallurgists a single, comprehensive and practical reference work that brings together the science, engineering, and technological aspects."
- Dr. - Ing. Mario Solari, Academia Nacional de Ciencias de Buenos Aires, Argentina


"Steel and cast iron-due to the extreme variety in their compositions, manufacturing processes, microstructures, and properties-are the most important materials in engineering. Usually, their state of the art is presented in several individual references. The new Encyclopedia of Iron, Steel, and Their Alloys is a unique reference covering the whole subject area of steel and cast iron from ore to application. Well-known international experts explain the basics and technologies. ... I will use the encyclopedia as my favorite reference of iron, steel, and their alloys."
-Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Olaf Kessler, Chair of Materials Science, University of Rostock, Germany
