Handbook of Ferroalloys gathers, reviews and concisely presents the core principles and varied technology involved in processing alloys of iron with a high proportion of one or more other elements. The work includes detailed coverage of the major technologies of ferrosilicon, ferronickel, ferromolybdenum, ferrotungsten, ferrovanadium, ferromanganese, and numerous lesser-known alloys. Distilling his 40 years' experience in ferroalloys, editor Michael Gasik assembles and tightly marshals lengthy contributions from the worlds' foremost experts. The work is a unique source for specialists, scientists, engineers and university students, exploring in depth an area that is one of the most versatile and increasingly used fields within modern metallurgy. The handbook's three sections cover basic knowledge, such as equipment, processes and theory; major ferroalloy technology like FeSi and FeMn; and less common technology, including alkali earth ferroalloys and complex master ferroalloys. Covers the major ferroalloy processes and technologies, cutting research time otherwise spent digging through old handbooks or review articles In-depth discussion of the C, Si, Al-reduction, groups II-VIII of the periodic table, supporting analysis of metallurgical processing Contemporary coverage includes not only process-related but also environmental and energy-saving issues Online version features 3D simulations of materials processing of ferroalloys. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
