This book is directed to the basic training of students of engineering in the field of physical metallurgy. One of the most serious problems confronting the engineer is the selection, treatment, and use of metals and alloys. These problems cannot be left entirely to the specialist known as the metallurgist, but must be dealt with to an appreciable extent by the engineer. No engineering project is without its problem of- a material to do the job. To cope with this situation the engineer must have a basic understanding of the science and art of metallurgy as it is related to his interest. The authors have intended that this book should meet this need. The engineering student should not be expected to learn practices in vogue, except as an illustration of the application of principles. It is on this basis that this book has been written. Every attempt has been made to present basic concepts insofar as they are within the scope of a course for young engineers.
