Stainless Steels: An Introduction and Their Recent Developments explains issues related to surface treatment, grain refinement, coloration, defect detection and powder metallurgy of stainless steels in detail with reference to new research findings. It also includes detailed descriptions of various classes of stainless steels (ferritic, austenitic, martensitic, duplex, precipitation-hardening) and introduces readers to new generations of stainless steels such as high-N(Mn), low/no-Ni grades. This e-book is a useful reference for metallurgists and materials scientists who wish to update their knowledge about progress in stainless steels over the last couple of decades.
