Physical Metallurgy 2
Physical Metallurgy 2 covers the basics of metallic structure formation. It handles alloy formation and the basic solidification of alloys through the exploitation of a basic phase diagram. It then jumps to the iron/ iron-carbide/ graphite system and lays the foundation of an understanding of the metallurgy, processing and application of ferrous alloys.
Physical Metallurgy 2 lays the foundation for study of further physical metallurgical subjects, such as casting processes, steels and other industrial alloys, application of alloys, heat treatment, etc.
