The first book since 1974 written by a steelmaking end user and refractory engineer. Why do you pick the refractory you do? How do you choose? Where do you start the selection process? The answers to these questions must always take into account the balance of competing interests among operations, purchasing, and the suppliers. Refractory Material Selection for Steelmaking is the ultimate guide to finding ideal answers to these questions. By following the step-by-step instructions—paired with detailed explanations and full-color diagrams—readers will be able to critically select the materials that are most appropriate for them.

The book consists of a series of edited chapters, each written by an expert in the field and focusing on a particular characterization technique as applied to glass. The book covers a variety of techniques ranging from the very common (like Raman and FTIR) to the most recent (and less well known) ones, like SEM for structural analysis and photoelastic measurements. The level of the chapters make it suitable for researchers and for graduate students about to start their research work.
