Steel Making is designed to give students a strong grounding in the theory and state-of-the-art practice of production of steels. The book is primarily focused to meet the needs of undergraduate metallurgical students and candidates for associate membership examinations of professional bodies (AMIIM, AMIE). Besides, for all engineering professionals working in steel plants who need to understand the basic principles of steel making, the text provides a sound introduction to the subject. Beginning with a brief introduction to the historical perspective and current status of steel making together with the reasons for obsolescence of Bessemer converter and open hearth processes, the book moves on to : elaborate the physicochemical principles involved in steel making explain the operational principles and practices of the modern processes of primary steel making (LD converter, Q-BOP process, and electric furnace process) provide a summary of the developments in secondary refining of steels discuss principles and practices of ingot casting and continuous casting of steels emphasize an increasing need to protect our environment and utilize waste energy explain transport processes, simulation, and modelling relevant to the developments in steel technology. The book provides considerable information in an easily assimilable form and makes an ideal introduction to the complex subject of steel technology.
