A TEXT-BOOK FOR BEGINNERS
ARTHUR H. HIORNS
[All rights reserved].
THE object of the present work is to impart to beginners a knowledge of the fundamental principles of the various processes employed in the Manufacture of Iron and Steel, together with an account of the valuable properties of these metals, so far as they can be treated in an elementary manner.
The book is not intended to supersede any of the larger manuals on the subject, but rather to prepare the student for a more advanced course of study. It also is hoped that manufacturers and workmen connected with trades in which iron and steel are used may find some of the contents of value to them.
A chapter has been added dealing specially with chemical principles and changes for the assistance of students having but a limited knowledge of chemistry.
