Description :  Metallurgy is a subfield of materials science. It is generally applied to the purification and production of metals from their ores. Materials science on the other hand is a broader field which encompasses the discovery and design of new materials. It also requires the knowledge of engineering, physics and chemistry. There has been rapid progress in this field and its applications are finding their way across multiple industries. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex advancements in metallurgy and materials science. It attempts to understand the multiple branches that fall under the discipline of materials science and how such concepts have practical applications. It will help the readers in keeping pace with the rapid changes in this field.
