Number ten of the Manufacturing Engineering and Material Processing series. Includes one page corrigenda laid-in. 800 illustrations clarifying key points. Thorough account of the hot-rolling process and facilities as well as follow-up treatments given to hot-rolled products. Companion volume to "Cold Rolling of Steel" by William Roberts circa 1978 and number two of the series.
." . .yet another superb piece of research reference. . . .It can be stated without any hesitation that the two volumes on rolling by Roberts will remain unique for years to come and that, as a major source of reference, they now stand alone in the field. Both the present and the earlier volume are strongly recommended to every library, rolling mill and steel-industry supplier, to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of metalworking, production technology, mechanical engineering and metallurgy, and to research workers, lecturers and practising rolling technologists." ---Journal of Mechanical Working Technology ." . .Coverage is very complete. . .The work is well illustrated and profusely referenced." ---Mechanical Engineering News
