This reference presents the classical perspectives that form the basis of heat treatment processes while incorporating descriptions of the latest advances to impact this enduring technology. The second edition of the bestselling Steel Heat Treatment Handbook now offers abundantly updated and extended coverage in two self-contained volumes: Metallurgy and Technologies and Equipment and Process Design.

Continuing the tradition of the first edition, this comprehensive reference integrates metallurgical principles with engineering technology in terms of basic process, equipment operation, and design.Up-to-date references, new topics, and rewritten chapters bring additional breadth, depth, and clarity to process design for heat treatments. This second edition presents unique and timely coverage of treatments for tool steels, stainless steels, and powder metallurgy components. The book also contains new material on vacuum processes, designing quench processes, steel transformation mechanisms, updated nomenclature and classifications, nitriding techniques, metallurgical property testing, and distortion of heat-treated components.

Steel Heat Treatment Handbook, Second Edition provides a well-rounded resource for everyday use by advanced students and practitioners in metallurgy, process design, heat treatment, and mechanical and materials engineering.
