This book explains the metallurgy of steel and its heat treatment for non-metallurgists. It starts from simple concepts—beginning at the level of high-school chemistry classes—and building to more complex concepts involved in heat treatment of most types of steel as well as cast iron. It was inspired by the author when working with practicing bladesmiths for more than 15 years. Most chapters in the book contain a summary at the end. These summaries provide a short review of the contents of each chapter. This book is THE practical primer on steel metallurgy for those who heat, forge, or machine steel.
About the Author
Dr. John Verhoeven is a Distinguished Emeritus Professor in the Engineering College at Iowa State University. He earned a BS in chemical engineering in 1957 and his MS and PhD in metallurgical engineering in 1959 and 1963, all from the University of Michigan. His professional career was spent at Iowa State University teaching metallurgy in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and doing research at the Ames Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy.
Dr Verhoeven's research was done primarily in physical metallurgy. He has over 200 research publications in refereed journals and eighteen patents. He received three Advanced Sustained Research Awards from the DOE, in 1981, 1987 and 1988. He is a fellow of ASM International.
Dr Verhoeven's teaching led to the publication of a textbook, The Fundamentals of Physical Metallurgy, John Wiley, 1975, which was used widely in the late 1970s and 1980s. At Iowa State he was awarded the Outstanding Teaching Award in the Engineering College in 1976, in the Metallurgical Engineering Program in 1980, and the Iowa Legislature Outstanding Teaching Award in the Engineering College at ISU for sustained outstanding teaching in Nov. 1991. He was appointed an Anson Marston Distinguished Professor of Engineering in 1985.
