This book chronicles the development of metals as both an industrial activity and a science. Progress involving structural metals made possible the air, land, sea, and space travel of today, skyscrapers reaching over 100 stories high, and many other engineering accomplishments that continue to shape modern society. Readers will embark on a fascinating journey through the evolution of metals and metallurgy from the beginning of iron production in colonial times with the first iron plant in 1645 to the prevailing metals of the 21st century. Charles R. Simcoe wrote more than 40 articles for ASM International’s Advanced Materials & Processes magazine, including a monthly series entitled “Metallurgy Lane,” which became the basis for this book.

This reference book presents a unique and comprehensive review of the crystallographic properties of all the elements and will be a valuable resource for metallurgists and crytallographers. The crystallographic properties are evaluated at ambient pressure in order to provide a base line for high pressure studies. Lattice parameters of the elements are presented as a function of temperature and related properties such as thermal expansion coefficients, molar volumes, and densities are provided. Special attention is given to ensure that the selected values correspond to the latest values of atomic weights and the fundamental constants.
This revised and expanded Third Edition contains 21 chapters summarizing the latest thinking on various technologies relating to metalworking fluid development, laboratory evaluation, metallurgy, industrial application, fluid maintenance, recycling, waste treatment, health, government regulations, and cost/benefit analysis.
