4-0 out of 5 stars good introduction to metallurgy
Overall, I enjoyed this book. The treatment of all steps of the steel-making process is thorough, and well-written for a new-comer to the topic. I especially liked the numerous photos/diagrams and step-by-step explanations and examples for how to read the various graphs (I-T, phase diagrams, etc.). These are items which are core to understanding, and where much of the knowledge/learning is embedded, but which often receive insufficient discussion in more-advanced texts (true for many disciplines).

In general, the earlier sections of the book devoted to steel were better-written, while the later sections on non-ferrous metals seemed less complete in terms of explaining the extraction/manufacture process steps.

In particular, I would have liked a little more labels on photos, especially for machinery, so that the components can be understood in terms of their contribution to overall function. Most of the photos are labeled adequately (overwhelmingly so), but sometimes it seemed like a picture was being shown for filler rather than discussion.

Fig. 1-6, demonstration of tool wear
Fig. 6-25, oxygen lance
Fig. 6-40, reversing slab mill
Figs. 11-1,2, annealing furnaces
Figs. 15-6,9,12, pack-carburizing furnace
Fig. 15-15, flame hardening system
Fig. 17-4, pipe extrusion
Fig. 19-6 galvanization
Fig. 19-11, die casting
Fig. 19-13, wave soldering

To sum up: this book is easy enough to follow to be a fun read, but contains enough depth to serve as a pretty good reference.
Happy with my purchase!

4-0 out of 5 stars A fine introduction
This is a well written and useful textbook. Of course, metallurgy is an endlessly deep subject but this is a nice first or second book to study it.
The only thing that I find annoying is a statement early on that iron and
carbon do not chemically react. Often they do not, but often they do in
iron carbide - the deciding factors are heat treating and other alloying
components. This statement should be corrected.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good.
But don't most of us already know the basics of metallurgy? It reminds me of the time I saw my brother smoking cigarettes behind the garage. He had stolen them from my mother and didn;t really seem to be enjoying himself. But he smoked the whole pack. As he finished, I thought to myself, "what a loser." But the fact was I had sat there for 45 minutes watching him smoke all those cigarettes. So, I guess I was even a bigger loser. A moniker that stayed with me most of my teenage life. I didn't dislike school, I got to see a lot of pretty girls that would never have sat next to me anywhere else. I didn't get good grades, as I was addicted to after-school cartoons like Tom & Jerry. Even well into my teens. If I see them now, I watch them in totality looking for what appealed to me when I was younger. I can't find it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome.
Arrived right on time in perfect condition. That's pretty much all im looking for from these people.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference but not good for teaching yourself
This is in reference to the hard-cover 3rd edition.

The book is good for reference, with just enough detail to be useful in every topic of materials science. You don't normally find atomic structure, microscopy, dislocation theory and fracture mechanics in one volume. It even has basic thermodynamics and diffusion. BUT because it attempts to be comprehensive, it doesn't have enough room to go into depth in all the topics.

I think this book should be titled "Introduction to Materials Science, before the nano-polymer revolution." I think it would be a better title.

I think this is how the book was written:
1. Take a intro to materials book
2. take out electro-opti-magnetic properties
3. add fracture mechanics.
4. make it thicker.

If you want to learn the subject, I think there are better books that are easier to read. But if you want to pull it off your shelf to read bits and pieces, this is pretty good.

3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointed in 4th Ed.
I love materials science and as a bibliophile I anticipated the release this new edition for months.Surely for that price and the 15 year interim since the last edition, I expected a grand volume updated with multicolored illustrations, supplementary sidebars, interactive CD, example problems - sometime suitable for bedtime reading at my wife's side.But alas.

Well, at least the 4th Ed. has a nicer cover, and some of the typos were corrected.The content is still excellent even though the authors had the audacity to omit two chapters on fracture mechanics"to increase the focus of the text" - okay.

My advise: Buy the 3rd edition instead.You'll be getting more for less.

3-0 out of 5 stars May be great reference, but not good for learning
It has been three years since I had taken a material science-like course.So, I had hoped, that by opening this book, I would relearn the concepts I had forgotten.

An intense look at the physcial metallurgy of metals, beginning with methods, going to crystallography, phase diagrams, and focusing on specific metals (iron-carbon, steels, etc.).

This book goes into great details.Metallography, crystallography are explained, many concepts are in great depth.

This is absolutely not a good book if you don't know much on the subject or are rusty (likeme).A lot of time is spent on the intricacies on microscopy.Many of the concepts are presented in too much detail.I feel that instead of learning about the properties of materials and material selection that I spend most of the time learning about every detail involved in the creation of dislocations.While this is very informative, as an engineer, I need to be able to select apropos materials, not spout how an electron microscope works or the fine details in edge dislocation.Homework problems are odd.And would it hurt if the pictures could have been colored?

Again, good reference.Bad at teaching or reteaching you material science.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good book
This book was in good physical condition and was shipped to me within a few days.But some of the pages do have highlighter marks, so it's not perfect.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best textbooks I've used
This book contains tons of useful information on almost everything regarding mechanical properties of materials. It isn't overly dense with formulas and derivations, nor is it overly simplified. The explanations are extremely well-written and the book is well-organized; clearly separating theory from practical applications (nearly half the book is about processing and testing). Examples are well-integrated into the text, not set off to the side.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very conceptual and useful to metallurgy understanding
This book brings very important principles of metallurgy and moreover usefull concepts to design products based on the worthy knowledge presented. Particularly the chapters about Fatigue, Fracture and Stresses Calculations in my opinion are of such importance to design robust products. The author is very didatic which makes the reading pleasant, of easy learning and application.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book
This book is a good one on metallurgy. It's loaded as it taps into several references. It's discourse is simple to the beginner and a good summary to the pro. I see it on the shelves of some academics I visit.

This is an excellent text for an introduction to physical metallurgy. In its popularity it is perhaps second only to the famous text by Reed-Hill (now Reed-Hill and Abbaschian). Its coverge is limited compared to that of Reed-Hill (for example it doesn't contain chapters on creep and fracture). But the topicsdiscussed are usually at a higher standard than Reed-Hill.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for knifemakers
Consider this the Cliff Notes of steel metalurgy.It is an invaluable resource for those of us who make knives and other cutting tools.Forging and grinding a great looking knife with good geometry isn't even half of the story; manipulating the crystalin structure of the steel with heat is at least 75% of it.Steel sellection counts somewhat less.This book gives a good "in depth overview" of what steel and other ferrous alloys are, what their properties are, and how those properties can be used and manipulated.It gives an understanding of what is happening to the steel, not just a cookbook intruction of starting at point A and proceeding to the finished product.It gives knowledge of what to do when the cookbook fails and how to modify the instructions to make things come out better.It allows technique to evolve into art.

4-0 out of 5 stars Get it.
This book was originally free on the web. Some coloured diagrams and additional information have been added to the paper version.
It is dense. You have to maintain concentration not to miss something or alternatively read it several times. Everything is well explained though - so there are no pre-requisites required before you can understand.
The occasional diagram may be labelled wrong - an extra challenge to make sure you are concentrating. Lots of diagrams, but often not on the same page as the text.
There is a subtle bias towards knife makers as an audience.
A great place to start to really understand steel, but it may not include all the information you need e.g very little information on Nickel as an alloying element. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The classic
I have the Dover 3rd edition of this classic, the one with the bilious, bright purple cover. I've been through half a dozen books on this fascinating subject and this is absolutely my favorite book on metallurgy. Very clear explanations of the properties of the various metals and alloy groups, especially steel and steel alloys, copper and copper alloys, alluminum, and zinc, with especially good treatments of the effects of the many alloying elements. Some of these properties are quite paradoxical and still difficult to predict and understand their effects even today, but it makes for fascinating reading nevertheless.

For example, it's understandable why adding such metals as tungsten, vanadium, titanium, or cobalt, and so on, would increase the temperature resistance and toughness of steel, since these are very tough elements with high melting points themselves. But why does adding aluminum produce a very fine, austenitic (i.e., non-magnetic) grain structure, thereby increasing the overall strength of the alloy? Or why does silicon, a non-metal, greatly increase the fatigue resistence of steel, which is why it's often used in car and truck springs and other similar applications? Even stranger, why does nickel, a magnetic, ferrous element itself, when added in large enough percentages to steel, produce alloys that are non-magnetic or austenitic themselves? All of this made for fascinating reading and discussion.

In addition to the above interesting sections, there are also very good discussions on such topics as the different types of furnace operations, annealing, hardening, and tempering, casting and finishing processes, heat treatment, defect analysis, and a nice section on thermodynamics and crystallography, as well as some special topics like powder metallurgy.

Overall, this is still a great classic and introduction that has yet to be exceeded. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The first metallurgy text
This is not an easy book to read.It predates Agriccola's De Re Metallica by several years, and has not yet made the bridge of thought from alchemy into chemistry.As a result, the section on fireworks speaks of principlesof air and such to explain how they work.

Additionally, many of theusages are different than we think of them today.For example, in theproduction of Aqua Fortis (nitric acid), one of the steps involves the useof red alum.After 10 years of research, I finally figured out that thisreferred to alunite, a mineral alum found in a certain mine in Italy whichcontained a high level of iron.

Given the difficulty in interpreting whatis being said, it is still an invaluable book to researchers in the field. It contains valuable information about the thought and processes in use inItalian metallurgy in the 16th century. ... Read more

This book works well for theoretical and practical application. It have some sloppy typographical errors, which there is no excuse for because this is a 6th edition, but they're not large enough to effect the accuracy of the book. I am using this text for a metallurgy class at a local community college and there are a variety of students with different backgrounds and competencies, and they are all using this book effectively. I myself have a degree in mechanical engineering and am getting a lot of useful, new information from this book that I did not learn in my ME studies. There is a lot of good, practical information in this book that can be easily applied in real-world situations, and the theoretical portions of the book are explained in down-to-earth words that make it easy to grasp those more abstract portions.

2-0 out of 5 stars obtuse
I'm a GED teacher w/ a bs in geology and a ms in geological engineering who has gone back to school to earn an as in Welding Technology. I bought this book and another ("Metallurgy Fundamentals", Brandt & Warner, Goodhart-Wilcox pub, 1999) to get up to speed on the metals I'm welding on and the effects welding has on those metals.Neely's book is obtuse in the extreme; unneccessarily hard to read, especially compared to Brandt & Warner's. Unless you're going for a degree in mechanical engineering or metallurgy, don't buy this book. On the other hand, if you enjoy writing a glossary as you read and have the time to cross-reference other books paragraph by paragraph, go for it. Oh, and the price of this book was four-times the price of Brandt & Warner's.

4-0 out of 5 stars A reviewed selection of a must-have handbook
For those which on 1982 were too little to study or work with the original blue book, this handbook is a valuable selection of the topics covered in that handbook which are in some parts updated. I think it's a very good reference book for mining engineers, hoping that the new comprehensive version of the blue book will be available soon.

Product Description
Mining, as one of the world's earliest industrial activities, continues to yield minerals and resources both valuable and fundamental to civilization. Yet the industry that produces such riches is not as lucrative as it may seem. It is one endeavor to discover a mineral deposit, and quite another to mine it profitably.

The industry's strategy for coping with low profitability has focused primarily on controlling production costs. Despite mechanization, automation, and other technical improvements, the aggregate profitability of mining still falls far short of that realized by most other industries.What appears to be lacking, contends author Juan Camus, is not additional technical knowledge, but rather sound management practices that utilitize the existing knowledge base more productively. Management of Mineral Resources aims to raise the level of mining profitability through better management--the process of generating plans and supervising their implementation.

This book is concerned with the analysis of some of the internal, controllable factors that influence mining production effectiveness. It combines the best thinking in mining and management so that practitioners can devise a concrete strategy for generating maximum shareholder value. Ideas in both of these areas have rapidly evolved in recent years, and this insightful text presents an authoritative review of the current state of the art.

A mass of published material exists, yet it is widely scattered--much of it in technical papers--and therefore not readily accessible. The thought-provoking material in this book has been selected, summarized, and presented by the author in a form that preserves the perspective of its relative importance. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Principles to Create Huge Value from Mineral Resources
"...the main question for the company is whether to exploit, sell, or hold the deposit for future use. Mineral resource management can be seen as the discipline that deals with the required activities to support and make this decision."

This book explains the why, how and who of this fundamental decision faced by mining companies. The author also explains why this should be of vital interest to governments, educational institutions and the struggling shareholders of mining companies. Consequently, this book should be in the hands of anyone involved in, or aspiring to, management at either the operating or corporate level of the minerals industry.

Juan P. Camus explains in plain language the theory and use of cutoff grade optimization techniques developed by people such as Kenneth F. Lane, author of the highly regarded book, "The Economic Definition of Ore". The foreword is written by Ken Lane, who lays a challenge for the next book on this fascinating and fundamental aspect of our industry.

The real-life examples, based upon Juan's personal experience, illustrate how these optimization tools helped create huge value from mineral resources. Following the successful application of these principles of optimization within Codelco, the CEO of the world's largest copper producer is quoted as saying, "In the past, we were doing things right, but it seems that now we are doing the right things." These "right things" contributed well over a billion dollars to Codelco's value and still hundreds of millions more for another large Chilean copper producer. Interestingly, the author points out that the techniques he advocates could apply in other industries.

However, beyond the tools and of at least equal importance, the author reviews organizational theory to propose structures and systems to capture opportunities for value creation, which he contends elude too many players in the mining industry. The author distinguishes between Strategic and Tactical mine planning stages, noting their different objectives, roles, time horizons, technical requirements, the types of people suited to each and their relative value creation potential. The author argues that without the proper systems in place for planning, the value of the mineral resource will be sub-optimal. Not only will the owners' be worse off as a consequence, but so also will governments, suppliers and society at large. Proper management of resources is vital to the mineral industry.

The book can be read relatively quickly, touches upon a wide breadth of knowledge and will leave the reader realizing that value creation in the mineral industry goes well beyond the familiar routines of employing economy of scale and cutting costs. As the author amply illustrates, the value of mineral resources lies very much in the application of intellect and ingenuity. ... Read more
