    The Chipman Conference

    John F. Elliott

    John Chipman. Professor of Metallurgy and Head of the Department of Metallurgy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, retired in June 1962. To pay tribute to Professor Chipman for the enormous contribution that he has made to the field of metallurgy, a Conference on the “Physical Chemistry and Technology of Steelmaking” was organized by an informal committee of his friends and associates. The Proceedings of this conference celebrate Professor Chipman's distinguished career.

    Professor Gordon Brown, Dean of the School of Engineering, said in his welcoming remarks that the conference comes at a propitious time; steel as a basic element in our society is undergoing strain because of severe competition from plastics, aluminum, and may other new materials. The task of metallurgy is to seek new technologies and to educate people in these technologies so that steelmaking, a vital segment of the economy today, will continue to grow, to be strengthened, to play an even stronger role in the total economic picture. It is to this task that the Chipman Conference is addressed.

    Contributors to the Chipman Conference are metallurgists from all over the world, the top men in the field. Inevitably, their papers discuss steelmaking in all its phases. For this reason, STEELMAKING: The Chipman Conference belongs on the reference shelf of every metallurgist and of every scientist whose discipline touches metallurgy.

    The Physical Chemistry of Steelmaking

    Proceedings of the Conference The Physical Chemistry of Iron and Steelmaking Endicott House, Dedham, Massachusetts 28 May to 3 June, 1956

    John F. Elliott

    A symposium on the physical chemistry of iron and steelmaking held at MIT in 1956.

    This voluem contains the papers presented at the Conference on The Physical Chemistry of Iron and Steelmaking which was held at MIT in 1956. For brevity, the pertinent points of the discussions have been summarized and these summaries follow the papers. The aim of the conference was to bring together metallurgists who were actively working in the field and who were qualified by background and experience to contribute significantly both formally and informally. The program was designed to include papers on the latest research in the field and also to stimulate the conferees to think about how these fundamental data can be used to obtain a better understanding of actual steelmaking systems.
