This book is a unique combination of theory and laboratory practice in the area of ferrous metallurgy. It covers subjects like properties of raw materials, coal and coke, liquid and gaseous fuels, iron ore agglomeration, iron ore reduction, steelmaking, and ingot casting. Divided into eleven chapters, the material is organized in a logical progression, beginning with providing information on identification of materials by using simple means. The other chapters provide an easily understandable presentation of various topics related to ferrous metallurgy, for example, density and porosity, angle of repose, raw material strength, coal and coke for ironmaking units, liquid and gaseous fuels, pelletisation of iron ore fines, iron ore sintering, iron ore reduction and swelling, steelmaking and ingot casting. All the chapters give the relevant theory and test procedures followed by experiments. This book is designed primarily for the undergraduate students in metallurgical engineering to help them perform laboratory experiments. The candidates preparing for AMIIM and AMIE examinations conducted by The Indian Institute of Metals and The Institution of Engineers (India) will also find this book useful. Key Features : Describes each experiment complete with aim, materials needed, equipment/tools required, procedure, typical observation data, calculations, discussion and conclusions. Provides a unique compilation of nearly 100 materials relevant to iron and steel industry. Provides a combination of all the related subjects covering the field of metallurgy, such as metallurgical design, fuels, refractories, agglomera-tion, ironmaking, steelmaking, and ingot casting.
