Microstructures Of Cast Iron
Mr. Suhas K. Paknikar
This computer based programme is a self-learning tool and contains first hand technical information on various principles of physical metallurgy which influence microstructures of various cast irons and their mechanical properties.

The first of its kind internationally this CD will update you on metallographic techniques to interpret microstructures in routine quality control which is the need of the industry.

This CD will be useful for practicing foundrymen dealing with melt control and metallography of cast irons.

This CD will be a good educational tool for undergraduates of metallurgical engineering and foundry technology.
