Ironmaking and Steelmaking free pdf This authoritative account covers the entire spectrum from iron ore to finished steel. It begins by tracing the history of iron and steel production, right from the earlier days to today's world of oxygen steelmaking, electric steelmaking, secondary steelmaking and continuous casting.

The physicochemical fundamental concepts of chemical equilibrium, activity-composition relationships, and structure-properties of molten metals are introduced before going into details of transport phenomena, i.e. kinetics, mixing and mass transfer in ironmaking and steelmaking processes. Particular emphasis is laid on the understanding of the fundamental principles of the processes and their application to the optimisation of actual processes.

Modern developments in blast furnaces, including modelling and process control are discussed along with an introduction to the alternative methods of ironmaking. In the area of steelmaking, BOF plant practice including pre-treatment of hot metal, metallurgical features of oxygen steelmaking processes, and their control form part of the book. It also covers basic open hearth, electric arc furnace and stainless steelmaking, before discussing the area of casting of liquid steel--ingot casting, continuous casting and near net shape casting. The book concludes with a chapter on the status of the ironmaking and steelmaking in India.

In line with the application of theoretical principles, several worked-out examples dealing with fundamental principles as applied to actual plant situations are presented.

The book is primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of metallurgical engineering. It would also be immensely useful to researchers in the area of iron and steel.

About Ahindra Ghosh

Ahindra Ghosh, (Sc.D., MIT, USA), formerly Professor, Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, is well known for his expertise in Metallurgical and Materials Thermodynamics. Besides 35 years of teaching and research experience at IIT Kanpur, Professor Ghosh has rich industrial experience, having worked with major companies like Tata Steel and Tata Consultancy Services. A Life Fellow of Indian Institute of Metals and Institution of Engineers (India), Life Member ISTE, and Fellow, Indian National Academy of Engineering, he has contributed extensively to national and international journals including Metallurgical and Materials Transactions (USA), ISIJ International (Japan), Steel Research (Germany), Ironmaking and Steelmaking (UK), and Trans. Indian Institute of Metals. He has also authored three books.Amit Chatterjee
A metallurgical engineer from Banaras Hindu University, Amit Chatterjee was awarded the Doctorate of Science (Engineering) Degree by the University of London in 1988 for his outstanding work on coal-based direct reduction and oxygen steelmaking. He had earlier obtained his Ph.D. in Process Metallurgy from the Imperial College of Science and Technology, London, of which he is also a Fellow. For his contribution in the area of oxygen steelmaking and direct reduction, Dr. Chatterjee has been hailed as The King of Direct Reduction- some have opined that he is not the King but the Emperor of Direct Reduction. He started his professional career in the steel industry in Germany, followed by over 39 years of distinguished service in Tata Steel, from where he superannuated in late 2011. Dr. Chatterjee is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, England, The Indian Institute of Metals, India as well as The Indian National Academy of Engineers, India. He has over 550 publications to his credit and is the recipient of several awards from India and overseas including the National Metallurgist Award (1977), Visvesvaraya Gold Medal (1981 and 1996), SAIL Gold Medal (1982), Bhoruka Gold Medal (1992), Tata Gold Medal (1997), Platinum Medal (2002) and many others. Dr. Chatterjee has authored several books: Ironmaking and Steelmaking--Theory and Practice and Hot Metal Production by Smelting Reduction of Iron Oxide (both published by PHI Learning) as well as two other books entitled Beyond the Blast Furnace and Metallics for Steelmaking--Production and Use besides a number of Monographs on Cokemaking, Sintermaking, Ironmaking, Continuous Casting, etc. Dr. Chatterjee is recognised all over the world as an authority in the field of process metallurgy, particularly in the area of direct reduction and other alternative methods of iron production.
