Summary "The perpetual flow of understanding between phase transformation that controls grain/microstructures and heat treatment which decides the size of grains/microstructures of steels is not well articulated in the perspective of undergraduate students. In this book, theories of phase transformation have been used to obtain a desirable phase or combination of phases by performing appropriate heat treatment operations, leading to unification of both the concepts. Further, it includes special and critical heat treatment practices, case studies, local and in-service heat treatments, curative and preventive measures of heat treatment defects for several common and high-performance applications"-- Provided by publisher

Notes Bankim Chandra Ray is a Professor of the Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India. Prof. Ray's research centers on the impact of extreme environmental conditions in FRP composites. He is at present pursuing the mechanistic origin of environmental damage phenomena of the engineered FRP materials. He has also worked on non-destructive evaluation of FRP materials during his academic visit to UK University. Professor Ray intends to further his expertise in the field of polymer nano-composites. He and his group have started an investigation on the effect of ultra-low temperatures on synthesis of nano-particles by sono-electro-chemical principle. He has also worked on solidification behaviour and structure-property relationship of especially Al-Si alloys. He is also investigating micro-examinations of interfaces and its implications on nano-composites in metal matrix systems. He has an experience on computer modelling of phase transformation of ferrous materials. Dr. Ray has recently been selected by UNESCO based on Science Citation Index. He is the author of more than 125 scientific papers out of which 78 in International Journals and regular reviewer of many high impact Journals of Composites and Materials Science areas. Prof. Ray's research has been funded by different governmental agencies. Further, he has 25 years of teaching experience in one of the premier institute of the nation. Mentoring as a Project leader of multi-crores integrated Research and Development proposal for the setting-up of Steel Technology Centre at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela. Rajesh Kumar Prusty ispresently he is working as an Assistant Professor at Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India after completion of his Master's degree (M.E.) in Materials Engineering from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India with CGPA 7.9 out of 8 (gold medallist). He holds his Bachelor's degree (B.Tech.) in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India with CGPA 9.19 out of 10 (first rank). He currently offers "Composite Materials" course to both UG and PG students and "Nanostructured Materials" course to UG students. Deepak Nayak is a Scientist at the CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology, Bhubaneswar. Born in 1989 in Bhubaneswar, he graduated from National Institute of Technology Rourkela with a B.Tech in Metallurgical & Materials Engineering before working at JSL Stainless Ltd., New Delhi in 2010. After his one year career as a graduate engineer trainee there, he returned to Bhubaneswar, where he received his M.Tech from Academy of Scientific & Innovative Research (CSIR-IMMT) in 2013. He was lastly associated with Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur as a research scholar prior to joining CSIR-IMMT as a scientist in 2015. He has been involved in managing projects from concept to completion in the area of mineral beneficiation, iron and steel, extraction of valuable metals and so on
