A Short Handbook of Heat Treatment – Kamenichny

In this post, we will see A Short Handbook Of Heat Treatment by I. Kamenichny .

About the book

The present hand book aims at giving the operating personnel of heat-treatment shops a reference book which would serve to overcome difficulties arising in everyday practice.
The handbook describes heat-treatment charts, heat-treatment procedures for tools, parts of lathes, automobiles, and agricultural machinery.
In addition the handbook deals briefly with the following subjects: quality control of metals before and after heat-treatment; heat-treatment and case-hardening of steel; heat-treatment of cast iron, non-ferrous metals, and alloys. The book also contains some practical hints on safety engineering.

The book was translated from Russian by I. Savin and designed V. Novoselova. The book was published in 1969 by Peace Publishers.
