Physical Metallurgy

William F. Hostford - Collection Materials Science

496 pages, parution le 04/05/2005


For students ready to advance in their study of metals, Physical Metallurgy com bines theoretical concepts, real alloy systems, processing procedures, and examples of real-world applications. The author uses his experience in teaching physical metallurgy at the University of Michigan to convey this topic with greater depth and detail than most introductory materials courses offer.

The book follows its introduction of metals with topics that are common to all metals, including solidification, diffusion, surfaces, solid solutions, intermediate phases, dislocations, annealing, and phase transformations. Other chapters focus on specific nonferrous alloy systems and their significant metallurgical properties and applications, the treatment of steels includes separate chapters on iron-carbon alloys, hardening, tempering and surface treatment, special steels and low carbon sheet steel, followed by a separate chapter on cast irons. Concluding chapters treat powder metallurgy, corrosion, welding, and magnetic alloys. There are appendices on microstructural analysis, stereographic projection, and the Miller-Bravais system for hexagonal crystals. These chapters cover ternary phase diagrams, diffusion in multiphase systems, the thermodynamic basis for phase diagrams, stacking faults and hydrogen embrittlement.


  • Combines practical and theoretical aspects of physical metallurgy
  • Focuses on specific nonferrous metal systems, such as aluminum, copper, nickel, magnesium, and titanium
  • Includes topics pertinent to all metals following an introductory metals chapter, as well as optional topics on powder metallurgy, corrosion, welding, and magnetic alloys
  • Contains references, sample and homework problems, and contemporary or historical examples at the end of each chapter
  • Offers a solutions manual with qualifying course adoptions
  • Incorporates the author's experience from teaching physical metallurgy at the University of Michigan over several years

Physical Metallurgy uses engaging historical and contemporary examples that relate to the applications of concepts in each chapter. With ample references and sample problems throughout, this text is a superb tool for any advanced materials science course.

L'auteur - William F. Hostford

William F. Hosford has degrees in metallurgical engineering (BS, Lehigh University, 1950), metallurgy (ME, Yale University, 1951) and metallurgy (ScD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1959). He has worked for the General Electric Company (1951-61), served in the Signal Corps (1961-63), was an assistant professor at MIT (1959-63), and has been on the faculty of the University of Michigan since 1963. He is a member of ASM International, TMS-AIME, and the North American Deep Drawing Group. He has published more than 80 papers and two books. His research has focused on crystal-lographic textures, plastic anisotropy, and formability. His hobbies include wilderness canoe tripping and watercolor painting. He has been married more than 50 years and has four children and five grandchildren.
