The Journal of the Institute of Metals


THE "Journal of the Institute of Metals" has acquired a very high reputation as a medium for the publication of the results of research upon the alloys of the non-ferrous metals. Despite the distractions of war, this reputation is thoroughly maintained in the volume under review. Starting off with a joint discussion with the Institute of Physics on the application of X-ray methods in the investigation of the equilibrium diagrams of metals, it contains some two dozen other papers on corrosion and surface protection, the structure of rolled aluminium and brass, spectrographic analysis, electron diffraction—the thirty-third May Lecture by Sir George Thomson—a thermodynamic study of the ageing of the copper-aluminium alloys by Prof. S. T. Konobeevski, of Moscow, together with many papers on the metallography of the light alloys of aluminium and magnesium.
