Rapid Methods for the Chemical Analysis of Special Steels, Steel-Making Alloys, their Ores, Graphites, and Bearing Metals

Nature volume 128, pages 288289 (22 August 1931) | Download Citation



IN the fourth edition of this book, we are presented with detailed descriptions of the methods of analysis of steel, steel works materials, etc. Instead of re-setting the third edition, the author has incorporated new and improved methods in eighteen appendices occupying 176 pages rather more closely printed than the rest of the book. The only other material alteration made is in the chapter devoted to the determination of tungsten in low tungsten steel and the analysis of slags containing chromium, tungsten, and vanadium; this has been rewritten and re-set. Otherwise, the third edition is given unchanged.
