Chemical engineers in the metals field.
Morgan-JD Jr.; Kirby-RC
Chem Eng 1977 Jun; 84(13):111-116
The convergence of physics, chemistry, and mathematics is taking place to a greater degree than previously in the field of metallurgy because of complex and challenging problems that require multidisciplinary solutions. Scientific application of the principles of physics, chemistry, and mathematics to industrial processing is leading to expansions in chemical engineering with which metallurgy has much in common. This Bureau of Mines paper discusses the importance of the roles of chemical engineers in helping to develop more sophisticated techniques in the metals industry than are presently available.
