Practical Heat Treating, second edition, by J.L. Dossett and H.E. Boyer, describes heat treating technology in concise, non-theoretical language. It is a guide for design and manufacturing engineers, technicians, students, and others who need to understand why heat treatment is specified and how different processes are used to obtain desired properties. This updated edition adds updated information about new processes and process control techniques that have been developed or refined in recent years. Appendices on decarburization of steels, boost/diffuse cycles for carburizing, and process verification have been added.
