What Is an Alloy_

An alloy is a solid solution or homogeneous mixture of two or more elements where a material with better or different properties is produced. The range of alloys produced depends on the solubility of the constituents and the proportion of them. The number of possible alloy combinations is almost endless since any metal can be alloyed in pairs or in multiples. Alloys can be classified into two main categories:Interstitial alloy. It is when smaller elements, such as boron, carbon, nitrogen,…

Iron Ore

Introduction Iron Ore production is an industry that has been around to produce steel that has been used as foundations for buildings, electric posts, houses and the like. The products from the Iron Ore production is widely used by the construction industry and thus this industry would always be around as long as there are people who would construct buildings. However, processing of the Iron Ore to make steels and metal carbide has put a toll on the environment. Several…

Rohm and Haas New Product Marketing Strategy

On May 15, 1984, Joan Macey, Rohm and Haas market manager for Metalworking Fluid Biocides, was reviewing distributor purchases of Kathon MWX, a new biocide that killed microorganisms in metalworking fluids. She found that total sales to distributors for the first five months were 74 boxes against a first-year target of 1,350 boxes. “I have a super product but I can’t sell it,” she said. “I am in the process of reviewing our approach of taking this product to market,…

Dramatic Iron in Tragedy

Dramatic irony is endemic in the experience of the tragedy; people get shocked when tragedy strikes but they will murmur underneath that they had seen it coming though the victims did realize it. Neighbors and friends read signs of death, they are afraid to it directly or try to tell it indirectly and the victims can not believe or just cannot understand. Tragedy sometimes strikes when least expected, Lindsay a beautiful young Woman of two, separated from her husband because…

Silicon Control in Blast Furnace

Silicon Control in Blast Furnace Hot Metal is one of the most critical problems in today’s Iron Making. With deterioration in quality of iron ore day by day, silica load in the burden material has a steady increase. The same story is with the Coke ash, which passes good amount of silicon in the hot metal. Every 0. 1% reduction in silicon in the hot metal gives rise to 1. 5 % increase in hot metal production. In the competitive…

Rusting of Iron Project Report

Metals and alloys undergo rusting and corrosion. The process by which some metals when exposed to atmospheric condition i.e., moist air, carbon dioxide form undesirable compounds on the surface is known as corrosion. The compounds formed are usually oxides. Rusting is also a type of corrosion but the term is restricted to iron or products made from it. Iron is easily prone to rusting making its surface rough. Chemically, rust is a hydrated ferric oxide. Rusting, an electrochemical mechanism: Rusting…

The Hardenability of Three Type of Steels

Objective The purpose of the Jominy test in this experiment is to determine the hardenability of three types of steels, namely EN 8, EN 16 and EN 24. Introduction This report will try to illustrate how the hardenability of these types of steels vary and why. This will be done by using the Jominy end quench test on each of the test pieces and then testing the hardness of the particular steel from the quenched end, to the end of…

Management and Steel Industry

1. List and elaborate some strategic issues facing NUCOR. Key strategic issues challenging NUCOR include legislation related to climate change, fluctuating cost and supply of iron ore and scrap steel, increasing amount of steel imports, production technology improvements and economic weakness. Changes in legislation could have severe impacts on the firm’s numerous production facilities and could be costly to become compliant. The fluctuations in both the cost and supply of iron ore and scrap steel directly impact the firm’s profitability…
