Iron, Carbon, and Phosphorus

Article metrics


DR. J. E. STEAD'S knowledge of iron-carbon phosphorus compounds is so remarkable, and indeed so unique, that the recent meeting of the Iron and Steel Institute in London was rendered memorable by his presentation of a most illuminating paper on this subject. As a matter of fact, the word “paper” is an inadequate description of the publication, which is very composite in character and deals with some ten aspects of the iron-carbon-phosphorus equilibrium; most of them practical, some of them purely scientific.
