An attempt has been made to cover, as the space would permit, the entire field of Steel making with equal emphasis on the general practices and the underlying principles. Besides the usual major steel making processes, mention has also been made about the recently developed processes of steel making to indicate recent advances and future trends in steel-making Technology. The main purpose of writing this book is to provide textbook for the undergraduate students of metallurgy or metallurgical engineering, especially in India, since their requirements are not met by any one book available in the market on steel making Those appearing for the examination conducted by professional bodies like the Indian Institute of Metals or the Institution of Engineers (India) may find it equally useful. The practical steel making and the steel plant executives may also find it useful as a ready made first reference for their occasional problems. As far as possible the book has been updated without loosing its brevity, to make readers conversant with the modern steel making technology and latest trends therein.
