This collection features contributions covering the advancements and developments of new high-temperature metallurgical technologies and their applications to the areas of processing of minerals; extraction of metals; preparation of metallic, refractory and ceramic materials; treatment and recycling of slag and wastes; and saving of energy and protection of environment.The volume will have a broad impact on the academics and professionals serving the metallurgical industries around the world.
This book explains how the specifics of Stiff Extrusion influence on the metallurgical properties of Extruded Briquettes. The practical experience of the utilization of Stiff Extrusion in metallurgy obtained so far suggests that this technology can substitute (partially or by 100%) environmentally unfriendly sintering. The authors start reviewing the existing briquetting technologies, providing the reader later on with the specifics of stiff extrusion briquetting technology. Other aspects treated are the applications of extruded briquettes on blast furnace and for the production of manganese ferro alloys. The authors suggest stuff extrusion briquetting technology for direct reduction iron production and list several alternative unconventional applications.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent and advanced work on metallurgy sciences and technologies--including material characterization of complicated alloys, heat and surface treatment, ferrous metals metallurgy, and energy savings in pyrometallurgy--in the important Ural industrial region of Russia. Until recently, research into scientific and engineering problems within Russia developed along different lines than those in Europe and North America, but nevertheless resulted in remarkable achievements utilizing different tools and methodologies than those used in the West. Many of these achievements - particularly in metallurgy - were made in the Urals.
This book provides best-practice guidance and practical recommendations on the use of numerical simulation for probability of detection (POD) curve estimation in the study of non-destructive testing reliability. It focuses on ultrasonic testing (UT) weld inspection but many of the principles can be applied to a broader range of techniques and situations. The first part lists and briefly describes the principal documents that establish the recommended statistical framework adapted for POD curve estimation. It also presents the most important initiatives on the model assisted probability of detection (MAPOD) approach in recent years. The second part provides details of the advantages and limitations of the simulation in this context. The third part then describes the prerequisites for the use of simulation (validation of the software, expertise of the user), and the fourth and main part offers the methodology and guidance as well as possible applications for using POD curves determined using simulation.

Metal injection molding combines the most useful characteristics of powder metallurgy and plastic injection molding to facilitate the production of small, complex-shaped metal components with outstanding mechanical properties. Handbook of Metal Injection Molding, Second Edition provides an authoritative guide to this important technology and its applications. Building upon the success of the first edition, this new edition includes the latest developments in the field and expands upon specific processing technologies. Part one discusses the fundamentals of the metal injection molding process with chapters on topics such as component design, important powder characteristics, compound manufacture, tooling design, molding optimization, debinding, and sintering. Part two provides a detailed review of quality issues, including feedstock characterisation, modeling and simulation, methods to qualify a MIM process, common defects and carbon content control. Special metal injection molding processes are the focus of part three, which provides comprehensive coverage of micro components, two material/two color structures, and porous metal techniques. Finally, part four explores metal injection molding of particular materials, and has been expanded to include super alloys and precious metals. With its distinguished editor and expert team of international contributors, the Handbook of Metal Injection Molding is an essential guide for all those involved in the high-volume manufacture of small precision parts, across a wide range of high-tech industries such as microelectronics, biomedical and aerospace engineering.
