Metallurgical Design and Industry: Prehistory to the Space Age

Brett Kaufman (Editor), Clyde L. Briant (Editor)

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


This edited volume examines metallurgical technologies and their place in society throughout the centuries. The authors discuss metal alloys and the use of raw mineral resources as well as fabrication of engineered alloys for a variety of applications. The applications covered in depth include financial, mining and smelting, bridges, armor, aircraft, and power generation. The authors detail the multiple levels and scales of impact that metallurgical advances have had and continue to have on society. They include case studies with guidance for future research design and innovation of metallic materials relevant to societal needs.
