Leaching Of Low Grade Rhodochrosite, E. D. King

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Although there are many uses for manganese today, none of them approaches its importance as a deoxidizing agent in the manufac­ture of steels. Without manganese the steelmaking in­dustry would be very seriously handicapped. The metal­lurgy of manganese has been developed around the high-grade ores, and unfortunately, our reserves of high-grade ores are very limited.

The Corrosion Resistance Of Iron-Tin Compacts As Produced By Powder Metallurgy, Robert W. Gambill

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The art of Powder Metallurgy deals with the preparation of metal powders and their utilization. As a more pertinent definition, the following has been suggest­ed: "Powder Metallurgy is the art of producing metal powders and shaped objects from individual, mixed, or alloyed metal powders, with or without the inclusion of non-metallic consti­tuents".


Electro-Deposition Of Iron From A Chloride Bath, Charles W. Noon May 1947

Electro-Deposition Of Iron From A Chloride Bath, Charles W. Noon

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Iron was electro-deposited from a ferrous chloride bath. Studies were made of deposits formed when current density was varied, and fin­ally when both current density and temperature were changed. An attempt was made to lay the ground work for a long range study of the chloride bath, and to determine the most simple conditions possible for obtaining a smooth, even, and thick deposit.


Age Hardening Of Copper Antimony Alloys, William R. Stern Feb 1944

Age Hardening Of Copper Antimony Alloys, William R. Stern

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

A large number of alloys of varying percentages of copper and antimony were prepared. These alloys were treated in various ways which might be expected to produce age hardening. The effect of cold working was studied in the range where the alloys were malleable.


The Effect Of Boron On The Hardenability Of Steel, William J. Foy May 1943

The Effect Of Boron On The Hardenability Of Steel, William J. Foy

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many attempts have been made to improve iron and steel and their alloys by the addition of boron. The re­sults obtained were not encouraging for the reason that the amount of boron used, generally from 0.2 to 2.0 per cent is altogether too high. This percentage of boron ren­ders the product hard and brittle and of late the experiments with boron in this connection have been practically abandoned.

The Extraction Of Chromate Salts From Montana Chromite, Server Tasdemiroglu May 1941

The Extraction Of Chromate Salts From Montana Chromite, Server Tasdemiroglu

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In this thesis I have tried to determine the suit­able temperature, time and the amount of soda ash and lime needed for the calcining process. The leaching and purification tests were studied experimentally. The earlier process for making chromate from chromite was not the same as is used today. There­fore I have found it useful to put into this thesis the newest method for making chromate salts and their important uses.

The Electroplating Of Cadmium From Sulfate Solutions, Lewis S. Prater May 1937

The Electroplating Of Cadmium From Sulfate Solutions, Lewis S. Prater

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

It has been proven that cadmium forms a very satisfactory plate on steel, which has to withstand severe corrosion, especially the corrosion of sea water and spray. The metal is now successfully plated electrolytically from cyanide solutions, but wherever work is carried on with cyanide, there is great danger of poisoning to the workers.


The Electrical Resistance Of Metals In Their Hard And Soft States, Eugene A. Avery May 1933

The Electrical Resistance Of Metals In Their Hard And Soft States, Eugene A. Avery

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many investigations have shown that the electrical resistance of soft annealed metals is usually smaller than that of metals in their hard, cold worked state. By annealing cold-worked metals, the electrical resistance decreases to a minimum and then increases upon continued annealing at higher temperatures. The work performed in this investigation upon silver, aluminum, copper, nickel, and soft steel corroborates this idea.
