Mining and Metallurgy
Material science plays a significant role in metallurgy. Powder metallurgy is a term that covers varied methodologies in which materials or components are made from metal powders. The metal removal processes can be avoided to decrease the costs. Pyro-metallurgy embraces thermal treatment of minerals and metallurgical ores and concentrates to bring about physical and chemical transformations in the materials to allow retrieval of valued metals. A broad data of metallurgy can support us to extract the metal in a more possible manner. The extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth is called as Mining and Metallurgy is the field of Materials Science that deals with physical and chemical nature of the metallic & intermetallic compounds and alloys. Diverse methods and skills used in the extraction and production of various metals are extractions of metals from ores, purification; Metal Casting Technology, plating, spraying, etc. in the series of processes, the metal is subjected to thermogenic and cryogenic conditions to analyses the corrosion, strength & toughness of the metal.
