Heat Treatment By Rajan And Sharma Pdf Free 161

Heat treatment is a process of applying controlled heating and cooling to metals and alloys to alter their physical and mechanical properties. Heat treatment can improve the hardness, strength, toughness, ductility, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and other characteristics of metals and alloys. Heat treatment can also be used to relieve internal stresses, refine the microstructure, and improve the machinability and weldability of metals and alloys.


Heat treatment involves three basic steps: heating, holding, and cooling. Heating is the process of raising the temperature of the metal or alloy to a desired level. Holding is the process of maintaining the temperature for a sufficient time to allow the desired changes to occur. Cooling is the process of lowering the temperature at a controlled rate to avoid thermal shock and distortion.

There are various types of heat treatment processes, such as annealing, normalizing, hardening, tempering, case hardening, surface hardening, and aging. Each type of heat treatment has a specific purpose and effect on the metal or alloy. The selection of the appropriate heat treatment process depends on the material, the desired properties, and the application.

One of the most comprehensive and authoritative books on heat treatment is "Heat Treatment: Principles and Techniques" by T.V. Rajan, C.P. Sharma, and Ashok Sharma. This book covers the fundamental principles and techniques of heat treatment in a clear and concise manner. The book also provides numerous examples, problems, tables, figures, and diagrams to illustrate the concepts and applications of heat treatment.

The book consists of 12 chapters that cover the following topics:

  • Chapter 1: Introduction to Heat Treatment

  • Chapter 2: Phase Diagrams

  • Chapter 3: Diffusion in Solids

  • Chapter 4: Solidification

  • Chapter 5: Annealing

  • Chapter 6: Normalizing

  • Chapter 7: Hardening

  • Chapter 8: Tempering

  • Chapter 9: Case Hardening

  • Chapter 10: Surface Hardening

  • Chapter 11: Aging

  • Chapter 12: Heat Treatment Equipment and Furnaces

The book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students of metallurgy, materials science, mechanical engineering, and related disciplines. The book is also useful for practicing engineers, technicians, researchers, and teachers who are involved in heat treatment.

The book is available in both print and electronic formats. The print version has 459 pages and was published by Prentice-Hall of India in 1994. The electronic version has 408 pages and was published by PHI Learning Pvt. Ltd. in 2011. The electronic version can be accessed online or downloaded as a PDF file for free. The PDF file has a size of 161 MB.

If you are interested in learning more about heat treatment, you should definitely read this book. It will provide you with a solid foundation and a valuable reference for heat treatment.
