This compendium of twenty laboratory experiments on metals and alloys attempts to provide to students of Science and Engineering an insight about the relationship of the physical, specially mechanical properties of metals with grain structures/microstructures. In almost all the experiments, therefore, the microstructural investigation is provided. Experiments have also been included on the determination of important mechanical and thermal properties and on the aqueous and atmospheric corrosion of metals. Theoretical background of each experiment has been dealt with in good detail in order to enable the student to understand the underlying principles and to appreciate the significance of the experiments. Information which could not be accommodated given in the text of the experiments, has been provided in the form of appendices.These include: reflection microscopy, experimental determination of transition points through cooling curves to get data for plotting phase diagrams, and quenching media for tempering of alloys. In view of the importance of microstrucures for some metals and alloys have also been given.and reference temperature in DTA is proportional to the heat flow to the sample or reference in DSC. DSC and DTA are used ... Central Processor Unit. Measurement parameters may be entered into the using function keys and a numeric keypad. ... 2.
